The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), passed a resolution that includes new policies, plans and laws to be followed by health services in promoting equal access for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT).

According to the director of PAHO, Carissa Etienne, resolution homosexuals are often disrespected and have the right to health care denied. "Gays, lesbians and transgenders suffer the worst health disparities in all countries of the globe," complete.

The main discrimições identified by PAHO are "outright denial of care, disrespectful treatment or even abusive, inappropriate assumptions about the causes of health problems or behavioral conditions, poor understanding by professionals of the specific health needs of GLBT audience, including health problems related to trauma. "

The agency also pointed out that among the GLBT audience are also high rates of depression, anxiety, use of tobacco and alcohol and suicide. The reasons are chronic stress and social isolation.

With the adoption of the resolution, the next step is to prepare a PAHO report on health conditions and barriers that gay and transgender people face in the industry.
