(Dis)Engaged: A Report on the Challenges and Barriers in Sexual and Reproductive Health Health faced by Women Who Have Sex with Women

(Dis)Engaged is a report of a consultation initiative conducted in partnership between Planned Parenthood Toronto and Sherbourne Health. In February 2007, the Women Who Have Sex with Women working group was established in response to the desire of both agencies to explore the sexual and reproductive health needs of WSW in their 30s, 40s and 50s.

The purpose of the working group was to conduct a consultation process with community agencies and diverse WSW communities to better understand these needs and to recommend interventions in the services currently provided to WSW in the Greater Toronto Area).

This report presents key findings from this consultation. It provides insight into the experiences of WSW with the health care system and raises awareness of the specific needs and experiences of different WSW communities. This report also provides recommendations for health care and community services with a view to challenging the homophobia and other forms of discrimination that are all too common in health care delivery.
