A Handbook for Health Care Providers Working with Clients from Diverse Communities

What does good health care look like? A positive health care experience can look like many things to different people. This resource is intended as a guide for health care providers to provide non-judgmental and stigma-free care, particularly for individuals from diverse communities who have had prior experiences of being stigmatized within the health care system. This guide includes easily referenceable tips and tricks, dialogue prompts, and resource lists related to care for specific communities.

This handbook was produced as part of Sexual and Reproductive Health Awareness Week (SRH Week). An annual campaign hosted by Action Canada for Sexual Health and Rights to promote sexual and reproductive health in Canada.

Each VSG has embedded self-assessments, learning outcomes, and curated resources.
