The Fenway Institute is an interdisciplinary center for research, training, education, and policy development, focusing on national and international health issues. Our mission is to ensure access to quality, culturally competent medical and mental health care for traditionally underserved communities, including lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people and those affected by HIV/AIDS.
We do this by conducting innovative research and developing education and advocacy programs grounded in the LGBT community. We act as a catalyst for change in the larger community by applying our knowledge broadly. We are motivated by the belief that everyone, everywhere deserves access to high-quality, culturally-competent health care.
Supporting research to advance LGBT health and reduce health disparities. Training the next generation of LGBT scientists.
Providing LGBT health educational programming for health care organizations throughout the nation and the world
Ensuring LGBT older adults have access to life-prolonging benefits, protections, services and institutions
I AM: Trans People Speak
Fenway Health’s contribution to the “I Am: Trans People Speak” campaign, which raises awareness of the diversity across the transgender community. Members of the Fenway community share their experiences as trans individuals and their commitment to being trans allies.
