ABOUT THIS BOOK
This pioneering study examines inequalities experienced by LGBT people in health care and considers the role of social work in addressing the inequity. The book is organized into three parts: the first provides a policy context in four countries, the second examines social work practice in tackling health inequalities, and the third considers research and pedagogic developments. The volume’s distinctive international approach features practice vignettes as well as key theoretical perspectives on the components of health inequalities, including social determinants of health, minority stress, ecological approaches, and human rights. With a preface from Gary Bailey, president of the International Federation of Social Workers, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans Health Inequalities will be relevant to an interdisciplinary, international audience of social work educators, practitioners, and students.
