The CIHR Institute of Gender and Health (IGH) wants to hear from you!
Under the leadership of our new Scientific Director, Dr. Angela Kaida, IGH is embarking on a Listening Tour and national planning process to inform our research investments and co-create a new strategic plan to guide our work together.
We want to know: How can we best foster research excellence regarding the influence of sex and gender on health? What is your vision for achieving health equity for women and girls, boys and men, and gender-diverse people? What Sex and Gender Science priorities do you think should be centered in our next strategic plan?
