New Report Provides UN With Global LGBTQ Health Recommendations

A new report issued by two human rights organizations seeks to improve the health and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people around the world.

 

The Global Forum on MSM and HIV (MSMGF) and OutRight Action International released a briefing paper that seeks to amend the United Nation’s “Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development,” a plan of action to increase economic, social and environmental development, founded on the principle of “no one left behind.” The report was released ahead of this year’s UN High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, which came to a close last week.

 

The paper includes a series of nine recommendations for making Agenda 2030’s Sustainable Development Goal 3 (SDG 3) — “Ensure Healthy Lives and Promote Well-Being for All at All Ages” — more LGBTI-inclusive and better equipped to address the impact of discrimination, violence and criminalization on the overall health of the LGBTI community.
