Funded by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR), our 2SLGBTQ+ Health Hub tackles a major training and capacity gap in intersectional and community-informed 2SLGBTQ+ health and community interventions, including interventions for Indigenous, Black, and other People of Color queer communities. Our innovative 2SLGBTQ+ Hub, which fosters opportunities for asynchronous and synchronous learning and skill development, provides a suite of multi-modal training, engagement, and mentoring opportunities. Our 2SLGBTQ+ Hub includes focused training related to the intersectional, social, cultural, and structural determinants of health, including interventions that address: a) research training, practice and evaluation in racialized and Indigenous 2SLGBTQ+ health inequities and strengths; b) moving research evidence to policy and practice; and c) supporting non-profit and other sectors working to better 2SLGBTQ+ health in Canada. This Call for Applications (2024-25) will form the third annual cohort of Trainees for the 2SLGBTQ+ Health Hub. This year we expect to fund at least 20 Trainees. For information, we received over 100 applications last cycle and funded 25 trainees (25% success level). We plan to offer three additional rounds of trainee applications in subsequent years.
