LGBTQ Health Initiative
UCLA Health provides equitable health care to all patients of all sexual orientations, genders, races or religions.
We formed the LGBTQ Health Initiative to deliver compassionate, equitable and inclusive care for our diverse community. We aim to create an affirming and supportive environment for patients, their families and our staff.
Some of the highlights of the LGBTQ Health Initiative include:
National recognition: We’ve achieved recognition as an LGBTQ Health Care Equity Leader from the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation. The HRC evaluates facilities’ policies and practices related to equity and inclusion for LGBTQ patients, visitors and employees.
Leaders in research: The Clinical AIDS Research and Education (CARE) Center provides leading-edge medical care and clinical trials for people living with HIV/AIDS. We are a center for many national and international HIV research networks and a site for pharmaceutical and smaller-scale clinical trials.
Full-spectrum health care: We offer culturally competent primary care services for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning children, teens and adults. We also provide a range of gender-affirming care options, including all types of gender-confirming surgeries.
