The current National Men's Health Strategy (2020-2030) identifies "members of the LGBTI+ community" as one of 9 priority populations that the strategy targets. Currently, there is very little detail in the strategy to help us understand what this means in practice.
As the peak body for people working to improve the lives and health of all men and boys (and all males) in Australia, we're keen to start a conversation to better understand the potential overlaps between the men's health sector and the LGBTI+ health sector.
The aim of this event is to build relationships and understanding between those working in men's health/male health and those working to improve the lives and health of men and males in LGBTI+ communities.
What are the key health issues facing males who identify as gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex and how can we ensure that our work to make health services more male-friendly takes into account the diverse needs of these communities?
From 2-4pm on Tuesday, June 30, the second Men's Health Connected round table will look at promoting men and boys health in culturally and linguistically diverse communities (CALD).
The National Men's Health Strategy names culturally and linguistically diverse males as a priority population. So how well are we doing at understanding and addressing the diverse health needs of men and boys in Australia's many different CALD communities?
