23 July 2020
The ACT Government is asking members of the ACT and region LGBTIQ+ community to share their views and experiences when using ACT health services in a new survey.
The survey aims to better understand the health services needs and priorities of members of the LGBTIQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer+) community, and identify obstacles to care when accessing these services.
The findings will feed into work supporting the ACT Government’s Capital of Equality Strategy and commitment to improving health and wellbeing of LGBTIQ+ Canberrans. Findings will help ACT health services break down barriers to care and improve services for LGBTIQ+ identifying people.
The ACT aims to be the most LGBTIQ+ welcoming and inclusive jurisdiction in Australia. Ensuring LGBTIQ+ people have equitable access to appropriate and responsive services and support is an important part of this aim.
Agencies across the ACT Government, including the ACT Health Directorate and the Office of LGBTIQ+ Affairs, and key LGBTIQ+ community stakeholders have partnered in the development of this survey.
The survey is open now until 20 August 2020 and can be completed anonymously.
