Sexual Exclusion – Homophobia and health inequalities: a review (UK)

Submitted by Sunil Patel on Wednesday, 30 November 2005 - 4:43am.

This literature review is relevant to policy makers and practitioners in all areas of health, education, social services and welfare. It provides an overview of research relating to the influences on health outcomes for LGB people and sets out key recommendations for improving the health of LGB people. An appendix provides some examples of good practice around addressing the needs of LGB people in both health and education. The review takes a social determinant approach, recognising that most of the factors influencing the health of individuals are not within their control but must be addressed at societal level.
