The lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans community are disproportionately affected with health inequalities.

The AHSN Network and LGBT Foundation joined forces to identify innovations and new ways of delivering services to address health inequalities facing LGBT people, many of which have been exacerbated by COVID-19. In this session we will discuss our project to uncover innovations, and to raise awareness of the great work that is already happening from within the community.

This session is designed explore the challenges faced by the LGBT people, and the difficulties faced by those providing services for the community. We will discuss our learning along the way, and hear from colleagues who are already excelling in this space.

This session forms part of the Innovation feature zone, which is supported by The AHSN Network.
