Resource spotlight

We’re excited to launch a new Policy Brief focused on the importance of high-quality research and evidence in boosting gender equity in Australia’s health care system.

Strengthening Gender Equity Through Research and Evidence argues that better research, evidence and data are required to understand the significant health inequities faced by priority populations of women.

It makes the case that health research should consider gender at every stage of the process, from conceptualisation through to reporting on implications.
