#WriteUsIn International HIV/AIDS Alliance campaign for LGBTI access to healthcare
Posted on: May 5 2015, 10:27 pm

From the International HIV/AIDS Alliance
Sign letter and share

http://www.aidsalliance.org/writeusin

Every year millions of marginalised people around the world are denied access to life-saving healthcare.
We have a window of opportunity to ensure that every one of us receives the healthcare we need, wherever we are, whoever we are. Right now, governments are agreeing the next set of global development goals which will determine the agendas and policies of countries for the next fifteen years.

Decades of hard-won progress in the fight against AIDS could unravel unless governments commit to including lesbian, gay, bisexual and intersex (LGBTI) people in the health goal under the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

If we donít act now, the health goal to ensure that everyone can have access to affordable and high quality health services through Universal Health Coverage (UHC) will not address the specific healthcare needs of LGBTI people and other marginalised groups. This provides a licence for discrimination and persecution rather than treatment and protection.

Sign our letter to the two people responsible for drafting the UHC text - Margaret Chan, the Director General of the World Health Organization and Jim Yong Kim, President of the World Bank. Ask them to make sure the new health goal is fully inclusive and protects everyone. http://www.aidsalliance.org/writeusin
