  • Promoting Research

    RHO promotes research that supports the health and wellbeing of LGBTQ people in Ontario. LGBTQ health research gives us accurate information about the health and health care needs of LGBTQ people, enabling policy makers and health care providers to respond to the health needs of our communities. 
RHO develops Research Partnerships in order to:

    • Gather data on Ontario’s LGBTQ communities
    • Advocate for research streams that support LGBTQ health research
    • Encourage the use of existing LGBTQ health research to promote evidence-based practice and improved public policy
