LGBT HEALTH: Division of Gender, Sexuality, and Health
Washington Heights / Inwood
The vision of the LGBT Health Initiative is to focus on health and wellness in a world that respects diversity in gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation, and in which LGBT people and their families have equal access to quality health care.
To realize this vision, we are building a comprehensive understanding of the development of gender identity and sexual orientation in interaction with the social environment. This encompasses: characteristics and health status of the LGBT population; risk, protective factors, and resilience; effective interventions and treatments; and evidence for transgender-specific health care needs. We also pursue the scientific evidence needed to inform public policies designed to end the stigma, discrimination, and violence encountered by LGBT people and their families.
