It outlines standards that should be met when caring for LGBTI clients, understanding LGBTI health issues and best-practice examples of inclusive service delivery in Victoria.

 
“Our Victorian Budget 2016/17 delivered $6.4 million for the expansion of gender dysphoria health services. This recognises the increased demand of gender dysphoria services to better meet the needs of our transgender and gender diverse population,” Foley said.

 
“We will also put $15 million towards Australia’s first Pride Centre to showcase LGBTI art and history, bring together advisory, health and support services and provide safe community spaces,” he added.
