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 and gender in health research. Our knowledge translation initiatives include:
- incorporating KT as an integral component of all IGH strategic initiatives
- developing online competency modules in integrating sex and gender in health research
- supporting the adoption of New Sex and Gender Equity in Research (SAGER) Guidelines
- advocating for Sex and Gender as an Ethical Issue
- offering webinars and producing videos on gender, sex and health research
- 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
