Why diversify women’s health research?
In November 2019, the WHRI released its new Strategic Plan. The new plan prioritizes equity and inclusivity, and shares our commitment to respect, work alongside, collaborate with, and support the health of women across the LGBTQIA2S+ spectrum. The plan also announced our new core values, among which are equity, diversity, and inclusivity.

Every year in Canada, over 8,000 women are diagnosed with gynecological cancer – and about 40-50% of these cancers are considered rare and often life-threatening. Dr. Mark Carey, recipient of a 2019 Women’s Health Research Institute Catalyst Grant, is working to find better treatments for a rare type of ovarian cancer called low-grade serous carcinoma (LGSC).
