LGBTIQ+ Health and Wellbeing Research Network

Welcome to the LGBTIQ+ Health and Wellbeing Research Network

LGBTIQ+ people experience major health disparities compared to the general population, but are neglected in Australian data collection, research, public policy and funding allocations. 

LGBTIQ+ Health Australia has established the LGBTIQ+ Health and Wellbeing Research Network to support researchers, promote a unified voice and inspire evidence-based policy that improves the health and wellbeing of LGBTIQ+ Australians. 

The Research Network aims to: 

  • Connect researchers and research organisations working in the LGBTIQ+ sector. 
  • Make LGBTIQ+ research more readily available through a centralised online resource. 
  • Support and coordinate quality and appropriate research to fill gaps, minimise duplication, strengthen findings. 
  • Develop an authoritative voice for LGBTIQ+ health and wellbeing research to contribute to the development of evidence-based policy and good practice. 

We invite you to participate: 

  1. Are you a LGBTIQ+ community-controlled or non-government organisation seeking research information to support your policy and program development? —use our Research Advice Service.
  2. Are you a professional or student researching LGBTIQ+ health and wellbeing and seeking to share information and build your network? —join the Facebook Group
  3. Would you like to want to join in provocative discussion with leading LGBTIQ+ researchers about their challenges and conclusions? —Register for one of our Roundtables

To develop and promote this new network, LGBTIQ+ Health Australia (LHA) is working with a Steering Committee of diverse researchers, representing a range of disciplines and expertise.
