Advance Women's Health Through Specialized SGBA Support

We are thrilled to unveil our specialized Sex and Gender-Based Analysis (SGBA) Grant Facilitation service, which aims to advance women’s health by helping WHRC members integrate SGBA into their research. Our comprehensive support seeks to elevate your projects, ensuring they not only meet the highest standards of scientific excellence but also incorporate critical considerations related to sex and gender.

Key features of Our SGBA Grant Facilitation Service:

  • Proposal Development: We provide early advice and strategic guidance through one-on-one consultations to help you articulate the relevance of sex and gender considerations through your research objectives, thereby enhancing the overall competitiveness of your submission.
  • Grant Review for SGBA: We will review your grant application and ensure best practices for SGBA are incorporated. This will include an examination of research methodologies, statistical analysis, and knowledge dissemination plans as needed.  
  • Compliance Review: We act as a liaison between you and funding agencies, ensuring that your grant applications align with the specific requirements of funding agencies—such as considerations for sex and gender.
  • Facilitate Relationship Building: Leveraging the vast expertise of our members, we strive to identify and connect you with individuals around the world that compliment your research project needs.
  • Grant Identification: Stay ahead of the curve with our knowledge of the latest funding opportunities, in Canada and beyond, that explicitly focus on women's health and SGBA. A list of funding opportunities relevant to women’s health can be found on our website and newsletter.
