[Correspondence] Health equity for LGBTQ people through education

We applaud The Lancet Editors (Jan 9, p 95)1 for drawing attention to new initiatives to improve the health and wellbeing of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people worldwide. Many challenges remain, but the US Department of Health and Human Services report presents a strategy for change that could inform the efforts of other nations. However, one important aspect is missing from the worldwide conversation on addressing the health needs of LGBTQ—educating ourselves.
