Lesbian and Bisexual Women's Health Week will run from 13th March- 17th March 2017. It has been organised by the National LGB&T partnership.
The aim of the week is to raise awareness about lesbian and bisexual women’s health inequalities, to make it simple for service providers to empower service users. The week will also be an opportunity to celebrate, highlight and learn from the work of groups and services which provide dedicated support to lesbian and bisexual women.
Growing evidence demonstrates that lesbian, bisexual and other women who have sex with women (LBWSW) are experiencing a range of health inequalities and both face barriers to accessing health care and are having poor experiences when they do.
