Lesbians encounter many problems in obtaining adequate health care from traditional health care systems that are organized on heterosexual assumptions. This article discusses the special health care needs of lesbians and the implications for social workers when serving lesbians in relation to illness and health care. The author's survey of social work courses in health care reveals that they are seriously deficient in content relating to lesbians and gays.
