Exploring enablers & barriers to community-based & community-led LGBTQI+ Healthcare

While many aspects of life for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer & Intersex individuals & communities have notably improved through shifting societal attitudes & legislative reform; significant health inequalities remain for these groups, & LGBTQI+ people are often invisible in healthcare research & service development. This project proposes to explore, with those involved in the research, design, delivery & evaluation of community-based LGBTQI+ healthcare, enablers & barriers in providing various models of healthcare to these communities. In Ireland there are limited specialist healthcare interventions for these communities & the knowledge gained could help reduce health inequalities.
