WA LGBTI Health Strategy Service Provider Consultation

Closed 17 Aug 2018

Opened 29 Jun 2018

Overview

WA Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex (LGBTI) Health Strategy Service Provider Consultation

The WA Department of Health is seeking feedback from Service Providers in WA to help inform the WA LGBTI Health Strategy (the Strategy). The Strategy will raise awareness of the physical health and mental wellbeing needs of LGBTI populations across the lifespan, and will provide a framework supporting strategies to enhance equity in access and health outcomes.

LGBTI Populations

In this consultation, and within the Strategy, ‘LGBTI’ refers to people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex or otherwise diverse in their sexuality or gender. It is recognised that many people and populations have additional ways of describing their distinct histories, experiences and needs.

Why We Are Consulting

The audience for this consultation is 'service providers' including: government agencies, not-for-profit agencies, private organisations and other stakeholders involved in the design and/or delivery of services that impact on physical health and mental wellbeing of LGBTI populations. The purpose is for service providers to identify: 

  • Health services that are currently meeting the needs of LGBTI populations in WA
  • What is needed to improve health services for LGBTI populations in WA?
  • What strategic goals should be included in the Strategy?
  • Suggestions and/or advice to inform the successful implementation of the Strategy.

WA LGBTI populations, including parents and/or carers, are also contributing to the development of the Strategy via a number of community workshops (conducted throughout the state) and an online consultation tool.
