Complete Headline: HHS Plans Cultural Competency Training for Health Professionals Dealing with Homosexuals, Transgenders
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says her agency's plans for the coming year include improving the health and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities; training health professionals in "cultural competency"; and developing definitions of sexual orientation and gender identity.
On the HHS Web site, Sebelius also summarized actions taken thus far on behalf of the LGBT community, such as forming an internal LGBT Coordinating Committee, the inclusion of LGBT people in implementing the Affordable Care Act and ongoing anti-bullying efforts.
The Web site states that Health and Human Services (HHS) will work with LGBT community advocates to implement its Future Recommended Actions.
These include a Web site that will help homosexuals identify insurance policies that cover domestic partners.
The HHS will also conduct outreach to organizations that serve LGBT communities to connect homosexuals with available funding opportunities.
HHS's Health Resources and Services Administration will also convene professional groups that represent LGBT health providers and students to identify challenges and opportunities for training LGBT providers and to isolate strategies geared toward increasing culturally competent care for LGBT patients, the text states.
The final item says that HHS will continue its efforts against discrimination, harassment and violence, including federal funding through target populations for population-specific grants.

Sodomites have carefully crafted a public image that leads most people, including alleged conservatives, to ignore the facts regarding the pathologies of the sodomite lifestyle.
Sick and disgusting.
There is no such thing as a transgender. It is just a mentally ill person that is being enabled by our current government and society
“Cultural competency” likely involves not be “judgmental” about why the patient has vegetables, bottles, or live animals stuck in their nether regions.
