On 11 November, the Agency will take part in the 9th European Public Health Conference.
It will give a presentation at the workshop ‘Mental Health disparities based on sexual orientation and gender identity across Europe’. It will draw on data the Agency has collected in its report Professionally speaking: challenges to achieving equality for LGBT people, which included information from healthcare professionals. It follows up on the Agency’s capacity building workshop of experts on the health of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex people from February 2016.
At this meeting, representatives of associations of health practitioners, international organisations, national health policy makers as well as academia and civil society organisations discussed the health inequalities that LGBTI people face as also evidenced by the Agency’s EU LGBT survey.
