Collective Action developed this report to inform policy and practice in the ACT in relation to the health and wellbeing of LGBTIQ people, their families, and communities. The report draws on the latest research and the lived experience of LGBTIQ people to highlight the inequity in health and wellbeing outcomes for LGBTIQ communities and establish the need for a coordinated response to meet their health needs. The report identifies four priority areas for addressing the health needs of LGBTIQ people, families and communities and provides recommendations that are based on best-practice and evidence-based strategies.
