Health policies for lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transsexuals and travestis in Brazil: the pursuit of universality, integrality and equity. Sex., Salud Soc. (Rio J.) [online]. 2011, n.9, pp. 7-28.

In this article we analyze health policies targeting the Brazilian LGBT population (lesbian, gay, bisexual, travesti, and transexual), based on interviews with government civil society actors, and a critical reading of programmatic documents and other sources. We highlight courses of action by the Federal Executive branch of government, conceived and carried out by means on intra-governmental and civil society partnership. In conclusion, we find that, when compared with with actions in other areas, LGBT health policies seem more consolidated, transversalized, intersectorialized, therefore pioneering, although not yet fully structured on the principles of universality, integrality and equity.
