Health Care Disparities and the LGBT Population addresses a people whose lack of health care access, including mistreatment and refusal of services, are often omitted from discussions about health care and insurance reform.
Research suggests that LGBT people experience worse health outcomes than their heterosexual counterparts.
Low rates of health insurance coverage, high rates of stress due to systematic harassment, stigma, discrimination, and lack of cultural competency in the health care system frequently manifest in negative health-related behaviors.
The dearth of data collection on sexual orientation and identity in state and federal health care surveys has led to inadequate information about LGBT populations, and has impeded the establishment of health programs and public policies that benefit them.
With its diverse perspectives, this book will not only benefit LGBT people, but will also more broadly improve the lives of entire communities, medical care, and prevention programs and services.
This research provides a better understanding of the social and structural inequalities that LGBT populations experience.
Improvements to our country's health care system should go beyond just providing universal insurance and should ensure equitable health care for all.
