Blog Examines Kaiser Family Foundation Issue Brief On U.S. Government, Global LGBT Health

A post in the Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks” blog discusses a new issue brief, titled “The U.S. Government and Global LGBT Health: Opportunities and Challenges in the Current Era,” released this week by the Kaiser Family Foundation. The blog notes the “brief includes a summary of U.S. responses so far to criminalization, discrimination, neglect, and violence against sexual minorities, including gay, lesbian, transgender, and bisexual individuals” and provides “breakdowns by country and by donor dollars given to places where laws criminalizing homosexuality stand next to global health programs,” among other topics (Barton, 4/30).
