CIHR-IGH impact study published in PLOS ONE

Our Canadian partners from CIHR-IGH have published an impact study of the requirement introduced in December 2010 that all applicants to CIHR indicate whether their research designs accounted for sex or gender.

Project GENDER-NET is cited by the authors as a key initiative recently funded by the European Commission to enhance the uptake of sex and gender considerations in research.
