Health Professionals Advancing LGBT Equality (GLMA)

Web       http://www.glma.org

The world's largest and oldest association of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) healthcare professionals. GLMA was founded in 1981, as the American Association of Physicians for Human Rights, with the mission of ensuring equality in healthcare for LGBT individuals and healthcare professionals. Today, there is still considerable ignorance about LGBT health issues, with many assuming that LGBT health involves only HIV/AIDS. In fact, the full scope of the LGBT health agenda includes breast and cervical cancer, hepatitis, mental health, substance abuse, tobacco use, depression, access to care for transgender persons and other concerns.
