Strengthening Health Literacy for Gay, Bisexual, and other Men Who Have Sex with Men: Case Studies of Health Department Websites
NASTAD’s Gay Men’s Health Equity Work Group (GMHE) is dedicated to the development and dissemination of resources to strengthen the HIV and viral hepatitis response and ensure holistic care and support for GBM. As part of this effort, NASTAD developed this brief to showcase the value of promoting health education and resource dissemination on health department websites for GBM.
The websites range from sharing information specific to HIV to providing holistic care needs to not just GBM, but to the broader lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities (LGBT). The brief includes an overview of health departments’ work, background on website development, and information on what resources were needed for implementation.
