Increasing Access To Gender-Inclusive Health Services Using Behavioral Science Approaches

Research aims to uncover barriers between healthcare specialists and LGBTQI+ community.

The Behavior Analysis, Strategy and Communications Team (BISC Partners) and the Democracy Lab (DemLab) jointly implemented a project aimed at increasing access to and awareness of gender-inclusive health services using behavioral science approaches.

The initiative was implemented with the support of the United Kingdom of Great Britain within the ongoing project of the Institute of War and Peace Reporting (IWPR) – Increasing Resilience in Eastern Europe.

The purpose of the research was to determine the existing psychological, structural or social barriers in the relationship between health care specialists and representatives of the LGBTQI+ community.

To achieve the goal, the research team used qualitative research methods, within the framework of which 10 interviews were conducted with doctors of different profiles. The purpose of the in-depth interview was to study the experience of the medical staff’s relationship with LGBTQ+ patients.
