CIHR 2000: sex, gender and women's health  
http://www.cwhn.ca/sites/default/files/resources/cihr2000/index.html

Describes the importance of gender analysis in health and the negative consequences seen to have resulted from a lack of consideration for sex and gender differences in health research and studies, as well as in clinical practice. Method: The research team reviewed a vast international literature on gender, sex, health, women's health, development and medicine. In addition, the team interviewed thirty-two key informants across four countries who are specialists in aspects of health research. Conclusion: The clear development of a focus for women's health research within the evolving CIHR is needed to correct the uneveness of the evidence base, attract more researchers to the speciality and encourage a comprehensive set of variables to be included across the entire field of health research. Most importantly, it will provide better health outcomes for Canadian women and girls and their families.
