This training manual is directed towards enabling health workers to become sensitive in relation to LGBTI issues and to control what they can in providing for a more LGBTI friendly environment. Health services are orientated towards a heteronormative society and have been blind towards the needs of people who have sexual identities which fit into the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) continuum. As such, many LGBTI persons have not felt able to access health services and many of the health issues that health workers should be providing for are overlooked. This manual complements existing materials which address training on sexualities, sexual orientations and gender.
