Centre of Excellence for Women's Health

We are a research and knowledge exchange centre focused on sex and gendered approaches to health, with strong roots in policy, practice, academic and community networks. We generate and synthesize knowledge about health and create innovative knowledge products to close the loop between research and action. We develop gender-transformative practice and policy in partnership with researchers, health and social service practitioners, health system planners and community-based health advocates. We work locally, nationally and internationally providing sex- and gender-based analyses on a range of health and social issues, and leading projects in gender and health. We are largely a virtual centre: our researchers and knowledge exchange experts work from several cities in Canada, and our administrative offices are hosted by BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre.
