Fellows’ Corner: Filipinos Have a Right to Inclusive and SGM-Sensitive Healthcare — A BEF Project

Written by: Ysabela Calderon

Project Consultation with Babaylanes Inc. (October 8, 2022)

  1. Concepts of basic SOGIESC,
  2. Gender, sex, and SOGIE as a determinant of health, and 
  3. Gender and SOGIE-sensitive healthcare.

  1. Each individual has their own SOGIESC, 
  2. Gender biases, as a social determinant, affect how one accesses health and how the system delivers healthcare, and 
  3. Enacted personal and structural gender biases and sexual stigma translate to health disparities in terms of worse morbidity and mortality conditions among sexual and gender minorities.
