LGBT+ Health:

  • Top Health Issues for LGBT Populations Information and Resource Kit - This Top Health Issues for LGBT Populations Information & Resource Kit, provided by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP), presents an overview of current health issues among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) populations. While many challenges exist with regards to the availability of data, this kit aims to create awareness among prevention specialists and healthcare providers of the needs, experiences, and health status of LGBT Americans.
  • National Coalition for LGBT Health - HealthHIV advances effective prevention, care, support, and health equity for for people living with, or at risk for, HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C—particularly with LGBT and other underserved communities—by providing education, capacity building, health services research, and advocacy to organizations, communities and professionals.
  • LGBT Health from HRSA - LGBT people face greater health threats than their heterosexual peers, partly because of differences in sexual behavior and partly because of social and structural inequities, such as stigma and discrimination.
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Health from the CDC - People who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender (LGBT) are members of every community. They are diverse, come from all walks of life, and include people of all races and ethnicities, all ages, all socioeconomic statuses, and from all parts of the United States. The perspectives and needs of LGBT people should be routinely considered in public health efforts to improve the overall health of every person and eliminate health disparities. 
  •  IMPACT - the IMPACT LGBT Health and Development Program was founded and is directed by Dr. Brian Mustanski. Our mission is to conduct translational research that improves the health of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community and to increase understanding of the development of sexual orientation and gender identity.
