Sex- and Gender-based Analysis Health Policy-Research Partnerships

Integrating sex and gender considerations throughout the health policy process can be complex. However, Health Canada staff charged with applying sex- and gender-based analysis (SGBA) to programs and policies don’t always have the depth of knowledge and expertise required to integrate sex and gender in a manner informed by the best available evidence or to evaluate the effectiveness of doing so with methods powered to detect and respond to potential unintended consequences. 
This is your opportunity to make a difference in Canadian health policy. 

Following the Canadian Government's renewed commitment to integrating sex and gender, Health Canada has launched a department-wide SGBA Action Plan. One key activity of this plan is a partnership between the CIHR Institute of Gender and Health, the CIHR Institute of Aboriginal Peoples’ Health and the Health Canada Gender and Health Unit.

The aim of this partnership is to fund Sex- and Gender-based Analysis Health Policy-Research Partnerships. These partnerships will help bridge gaps between research knowledge and policy development and support the rigorous application of SGBA to ensure Health Canada’s outward facing activities address the diverse needs of women, men, girls, boys and gender-diverse people to maximize positive health outcomes and improve health equity.
