ILGA Lesbian Health brochure now available in Burmese

in WORLD, 06/02/2012

The French, Dutch, English, Spanish, Bahasi, Filipino, Italian, and Georgian version of “Lesbian Health: Myths and Realities” were released in 2011 and beginning of 2012. We are now pleased to inform you that a new version in Burmese is now available thanks to Human Rights Education Institute of Burma (HREIB)and its LGBT Rights Programme Colours Rainbow.

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.
