Women’s Xchange is advancing a gender-sensitive approach to improve the health and quality of life for women and all Ontarians, by connecting researchers, students, community organizations, policy makers, clinicians and individuals interested in women’s health research.

Supporting the Integration of Sex & Gender in Health Research

Men and women experience health, access health care, and respond to therapies such as drug interventions differently. Many researchers, policy makers, and clinicians are seeking expert advice on how best to integrate sex and gender into their work.

Women's Xchange has resources and a consultation service to help strengthen your research.
