External Award: SGBA Health Policy-Research Partnerships

November 30, 2017

Following the Canadian Government's renewed commitment to integrating sex and gender, Health Canada has launched a department-wide Sex- and Gender-based Analysis (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.

CIHR and partners are offering up to $75,000/yr for 2 years for research:

  • Involving Indigenous fathers/men in healthy child development Government of Canada activities
  • Applying SGBA+ to investigate consumer perceptions of health product labelling

The deadline to apply is January 23, 2018. For more information about this opportunity and how to apply, please see the full posting on ResearchNet.
