Kaiser Family Foundation Issue Brief Explores U.S. Government And Global LGBT Health

The Kaiser Family Foundation has released an issue brief, titled “The U.S. Government and Global LGBT Health: Opportunities and Challenges in the Current Era.” The brief summarizes main points of discussion raised at two Kaiser Family Foundation-convened roundtable discussions that included representatives from the U.S. government, multilateral institutions, non-governmental organizations, think tanks, and academia. The discussions focused on opportunities, challenges, and potential next steps for the U.S. government to consider in addressing the health needs of LGBT individuals around the world. The brief also provides an overview of global LGBT health issues, and reviews U.S. government efforts to address global LGBT health to date (Kates, 4/29).
