Our programs

Our primary focus is to prepare an outstanding scientific session of LGBT public health research at each year's APHA Annual Meeting. Preliminary program available for the 2019 Annual Meeting!

Additionally, our caucus works on crafting policy statements for APHA, and works with other LGBT Health organizations to support critical health policy issues throughout the year.  We offer a student mentorship program, and support LGBTQ public health professionals at every stage of their careers!  If you are interested in getting involved, please email us at APHALGBT@gmail.com !

The LGBTQ Health Caucus proposed policy statements

The LGBTQ Health Caucus has two proposed policy statements available for review on the APHA website through March 27, 2020. You must be an APHA member to login and review proposed policies.

APHA is the primary voice for public health advocacy, and one of the key ways that APHA's policy agenda is shaped is through policy statements on critical public health issues. For the 2020 policy cycle, the LGBTQ Health Caucus has two policies under review.

Sexual and Gender Minority Demographic Data: Inclusion in Medical Records, National Surveys, and Public Health Research

and 

Banning the Practice of Conversion Therapy Among LGBTQAI+ Populations

Please take a look! APHA members can submit comments on all the listed policies via the Member Review Form.
