dc.description.abstract Sexual and gender minorities (SGM) experience a number of health inequities. That social determinants of health drive these inequities is well-documented, but there is little evidence on the number and types of interventions across Canada that address these determinants for these populations. We conducted an environmental scan of programs in Canada that target SGM, and classified the programs based on their level of intervention (individual/interpersonal, institutional and structural). We found that few programs target women, mid-life adults, Indigenous people or ethnoracial minorities, recent immigrants and refugees, and minority language speakers, and few interventions operate at a structural level. en_US
dc.description.sponsorship Funding to conduct the scan was provided by the Public Health Agency of Canada’s Social Determinants of Health Division. NJL is supported by a Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research Scholar Award (#16863). en_US
