Public Health Opportunities for Promoting Health Equity in Cancer Prevention and Control in LGBT Populations



Public Health Opportunities for Promoting Health Equity in Cancer Prevention and Control in LGBT Populations



Lgbt Health 2016



Advances in cancer prevention, detection, and treatment have led to reductions in morbidity and premature mortality and improvements in quality of life. However, not all Americans have benefitted equally from these advances, and certain populations experience continued disparities in cancer care. Although research and public health efforts have highlighted the experiences of some groups, other populations have been relatively understudied, such as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) individuals. Public health efforts in surveillance, research, programs, and partnerships can provide opportunities to advance health equity for LGBT at the population level and lead to better health outcomes for LGBT individuals with cancer.
