Since 2012, Health Access has staffed and hosted the California Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer Health & Human Services Network (LGBTQ HHS Network). This is a statewide coalition of more than 50 non-profit providers, community centers, and researchers that advocates collectively for state level policies and resources that will advance LGBTQ health. We strive to provide coordinated leadership about LGBTQ health policy in a proactive, responsive manner that promotes health and wellness as part of the movement for LGBTQ equality.

Through monthly conference calls and regular email updates, the LGBTQ HHS Network keeps organizations updated about state-level policies and initiatives. Consistent outreach and communication ensures that the LGBTQ HHS Network hears the collective needs of LGBTQ communities and can represent those needs to legislators and other policymakers.

The Network seeks to:

  • Advocate for policies advancing the health of LGBTQ communities
  • Expand coverage and improve access to quality health care
  • Strengthen programs and build capacity for member organizations
  • Increase funding to LGBTQ health and human services organizations
