Around the world, LGBTI persons are stigmatized in societal, cultural, economic and political contexts. The repercussions of this stigmatization are severe. Mental health problems such as depression, self-harm, alcohol and drug abuse and suicidal thoughts can affect anyone, but they’re more common among people who identify as LGBTI. Members of the LGBTI community are more vulnerable to fall victim to hate crimes, and experience difficulties accessing public services such as healthcare for fear of discrimination.
The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Viet Nam is looking for 01 qualified firm to collaborate with UNDP and local stakeholders to lead the research and data collection work under the LGBTI Inclusion Index in Viet Nam. This work aims to fill the existing data gaps on LGBTI persons and communities in Viet Nam in order to increase understanding broadly as well as support evidence-based policy development. Such research should focus on and fit in one of the five thematic areas of the LGBTI Inclusion Index framework.
