The Removing Barriers website offers a simple three-step approach to address and eliminate barriers created by stigma and discrimination in healthcare settings. By understanding these barriers in Step 1, individuals can recognise the negative impact they can have on people’s access to healthcare and treatment. Step 2 encourages healthcare professionals to identify and acknowledge various forms of stigma and discrimination. Finally, in Step 3, the website empowers individuals to make a difference by changing their language, actions, and habits, fostering a more inclusive and supportive healthcare environment. By following this straightforward process, healthcare providers can play a vital role in breaking down barriers, promoting equity, and ensuring that everyone has equal access to quality healthcare services.
