Pride Week 5: Showing You Care
The resources shared via these posts for Pride Month touch upon only a small portion of the health information needs and concerns of LGBTQIA+ people and the providers who care for them. A lack of research exists in these populations in part because LGBTQIA+ persons might not be out to their health care providers for fear of stigma and discrimination or perhaps not seek medical care at all. Some providers may not have proper training in the health needs of Sexual and Gender Minorities (SGM). This final Pride Month post offers a few resources to improve the health, safety, and wellness of members of the LGBTQIA+ community. O...

Reimagining Ageing: Older Persons as Agents of Development
By Armida Salsiah AlisjahbanaBANGKOK, Thailand, Jun 29 2022 (IPS) Older persons are highly visible across Asia and the Pacific: they work in agricultural fields producing our food supplies, peddle their wares as street vendors, drive tuk-tuks and buses, exercise in our parks, lead some of the region’s most successful companies and form an integral part of our families.
