Minority stress, and access to health care for non- heterosexual women.
Non-heterosexual women experience poorer health outcomes than heterosexual women, but the reasons for this remain unclear. Previous studies suggest that interactions with healthcare settings are more uncomfortable for non-heterosexual than heterosexual women, which may prompt these women not to seek healthcare access and, as a result, experience worse health. We will examine whether these premises hold in Australia using different cohorts of ALSWH data.
