IGH Knowledge translation
At the core of IGH’s mission is a commitment to knowledge translation (KT), which CIHR defines as “a dynamic and iterative process that includes synthesis, dissemination, exchange and ethically-sound application of knowledge to improve the health of Canadians, provide more effective health services and products and strengthen the health care system.”

In addition to creating initiatives that offer funding opportunities to researchers across health disciplines, IGH works to ensure that research evidence is translated into action that improves health research, services, policies and systems. To achieve this goal, we engage in advocacy, creating training, citizen engagement and creating resources on sex, gender and health research. Our knowledge translation initiatives include:
incorporating KT as an integral component of all IGH strategic initiatives
supporting researchers and trainees to undertake KT activities through our Institute Community Support Program
advocating for Sex and Gender as an Ethical Issue
providing resources on Sex, Gender and Knowledge Translation
partnering with other institutes, health organizations and research institutions to build relationships and share knowledge through events and workshops
publishing a gender, sex and health research casebook
