Health Care Social Accountability Project Launch

VPride launched its latest booklet titled, Improving Vanuatu SOGIE Inclusive Health Care: A Social Accountability Project.

In Vanuatu and the Pacific region, there are very few resources to address SOGIE inequities in health care. Research is very limited in this area, there are no resources to guide health providers in developing specialized knowledge, policies and skills for SOGIE inclusive health care, and there also no measures available to assess existing healthcare services on SOGIE inclusiveness. Even though Vanuatu is a signatory to many of the international human rights and health conventions, there are little to no accountability mechanisms in place. This project addresses these issues and presents solutions.

We would like to thank Spotlight Initiative by UN Women for their partnership in the completion of this booklet, and a special thanks to HCDI for the technical support.
