Abstract

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, and Intersex (LGBTI) people commonly experience a range of health and social inequalities. Such inequalities are unfair, preventable and fundamentally incompatible with public health and human rights principles. This article draws on the European Commission’s Health4LGBTI pilot to highlight some of the inequalities faced by LGBTI people in EU Member States, as well as their fundamental causes in relation to health services. In doing so, we propose that mandatory training for health professionals needs to be considered as one of the main interventional avenues towards reducing the health inequalities experienced by LGBTI people.
