Given the general lack of focus on lesbian health issues, ILGA decided, following a consultation with its members, to design a project that raises awareness of some misconceptions on lesbian’s health and sexual behaviour that could have life-threatening consequences.

The French, Dutch, English, Spanish, Bahasi, Filipino, Italian, and Georgian version of "Lesbian Health: Myths and Realities" were released in 2011 and middle 2012. 

A new version in Burmese is now available thanks to Human Rights Education Institute of Burma (HREIB) and its LGBT Rights Programme Colours Rainbow.  HREIB adapted a section to the document regarding breast cancer self-exams in order to better serve their community.
