The literature on the subject systematically shows that LGBTIQ+ people suffer from a worse health status than heterosexual and cisgender people. They are subject to more medical errors, discriminations, and delays in receiving care. They face many specific barriers in their access to care. Health institutions and health care professionals have the responsibility to adapt to the specific health needs of LGBTIQ+ people and to offer quality healthcare free from discrimination. This article highlights these barriers and proposes strategies to overcome them, both at individual and organisational levels.
