Led by Jenny Hunt, this sister project to ACCESSCare in Zimbabwe was funded by Open Society Foundations.
ACCESSCare Zimbabwe aimed to examine the healthcare and palliative care experiences of LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex) people and sex workers in Zimbabwe.
The main paper from this study is freely accessible via open access from the BMJ Global Health website, here.
- This was the first study undertaken in Zimbabwe to describe health-seeking behaviours and experiences of LGBTI people.
- The project involved focus groups and interviews with 60 individuals from across Zimbabwe who either identified as a sex worker or as an LGBTI person. Twelve in-depth interviews were also conducted with health workers, organisational representatives and palliative care providers.
- The ACCESSCare Zimbabwe study commenced in 2014, and was completed in January 2015.
The ACCESSCare Project was supported by colleagues at GALZ, and funded by Open Society Foundations.
