ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE FOR LGBT PEOPLE IN KYRGYZSTAN


ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE FOR LGBT PEOPLE IN KYRGYZSTAN
In the fall of 2006, Soros Foundation Kyrgyzstan and SHARP
commissioned qualitative research on the opportunities and
barriers to health care access for LGBT persons in Kyrgyzstan.
The report, “”Access to Health Care for LGBT People in
Kyrgyzstan,”” explores possibilities for increasing LGBT access to
health services; maps current NGOs working on LGBT health and
human rights issues; highlights Kyrgyzstan’s obligations to
provide health care to LGBT persons in accordance with
international standards and laws; and articulates recommendations
for the development of non-discriminatory health systems and
services to improve LGBT health access. English and Russian
versions of the report will be available in October at:
