Rainbow Health Australia is a program that supports lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and gender diverse, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) health and wellbeing through research and knowledge translation, training, resources, policy advice and service accreditation through the Rainbow Tick.
We’re located within the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society (ARCSHS) at La Trobe University and are funded by the Victorian government.
Rainbow Health Australia has been working for over 15 years to deliver positive change for LGBTIQ communities.
We work closely with researchers at ARCSHS on cutting edge research into LGBTIQ health and wellbeing. This includes research development, translation and impact.
An integral part of our work is to build partnerships with government, researchers, community, organisations and service providers to create equity and inclusion.
Rainbow Health Australia incorporates a number of projects and initiatives that support LGBTIQ health and wellbeing.
