Other : National Women’s Health Research Initiative: Pan-Canadian Women’s Health Coalition - Hubs
The Pan-Canadian Women's Health Coalition will be composed of virtual hubs across Canada linked through an overarching coordinating centre. Applications for the hubs and the coordinating centre will occur over two separate funding opportunities. The current funding opportunity is accepting applications for the hubs. A future funding opportunity, which is anticipated to be launched in Fall 2023, will be accepting applications for the coordinating centre. Applying for hubs funding does not preclude applying for the coordinating centre funding.
Hubs (current funding opportunity)
Each hub must identify one or more areas of women's health to address, within the scope of this funding opportunity, based on community, regional and/or national needs, ensuring that women's and gender-diverse people's voices are at the heart of the hub's activities. It is important to acknowledge that traditional knowledge, such as those of Indigenous and African diasporic communities, has been undervalued and underutilized in Western medicine. Therefore, the hubs are expected to amplify traditional ways of knowing to provide insights on how to improve women's health and wellness through an intersectional lens.
The specific objectives of this funding opportunity are to:
- Mobilize and scale-up newly generated and existing knowledge and models of care into effective, gender-sensitive and culturally appropriate women's health and wellness services across Canada.
- Maximize research impact within and beyond the Coalition (hubs and the coordinating centre) to help ensure evidence is integrated into health policies, decision making, and planning to support community, regional, provincial, territorial, and/or federal efforts regarding women's health.
- Build capacity for the next generation of health researchers through training and mentorship opportunities embedded within the hub to support the development of a sustainable women's health research ecosystem.
- Engage in community-based priority-setting activities that include diverse voices to identify future critical areas of women's health research based on community, regional and/or national needs.
The maximum amount per grant is up to $210,000 per year for up to 4 years, for a total of $840,000 per grant.
