UCLA LGBTQ+ Health Initiative
The LGBTQ+ Health Initiative ensures that all patients have access to compassionate, inclusive and equitable health care.
LGBTQ+ Health Care Program Highlights
Some of the highlights of the UCLA 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.
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.
