Orientation of Health service Providers:

Spectrum has been working with individual or personal doctors since 2012. We noticed there was a need to raise more awareness on the specific health issues that the MSM/GM community faces to health care providers. Through our partner organizations, we began holding trainings to orient health care workers on MSM/GM needs. It was through this training that we realized that many health care workers were unaware of the specific health care challenges of the community.
