Presenting the BC Women’s Health Research Agenda


cover of the women's health research agendaOn May 9th, 2018 the Women’s Health Research Institute presented the BC Women’s Health Research Agenda at the Third Annual Women’s Health Research Symposium.

The BC Women’s Health Research Agenda “[identifies] key challenges, drivers, and enablers to women’s health research and implementation efforts in BC; and, [presents] strategies for enabling, facilitating, and accelerating growth and excellence in women’s health research and implementation” (p.3).  It was developed by Karen Gelb (Manager, Knowledge Translation, UBC Midwifery Program), Tobi Reid (Research Assistant, UBC Midwifery Program), and Dr. Lori Brotto (WHRI Executive Director).

The BC Women’s Health Research Agenda is available for download here, as is the complimentary document, Take Action for Change, which provides examples of the many ways people can advocate for women’s health research individually, locally, provincially, and federally.
