We work with research, policy, practice, and community partners to mobilize evidence to action on women’s health issues.
We have developed and tested approaches to incorporating sex, gender, equity and gender transformative principles into existing responses to substance use.
We are leaders on trauma informed and gender informed approaches in the substance use field.
Maternal health is an important focus of our work, and we facilitate a virtual team focused on maternal determinants of health, substance use, and prevention of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).
We are committed to honouring Indigenous knowledge systems and ways of knowing in our work, and responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s Calls to Action, and the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls’ Calls for Justice.
The Centre of Excellence for Women’s Health conducts research focused on improving gender equity, health service, & policy responses.
