The Centre for
Sex and Gender Equity in Health and Medicine

The Australian Centre for Sex and Gender Equity in Health and Medicine is led by Centre academic partners, The George Institute for Global Health, the Australian Human Rights Institute at UNSW Sydney and Deakin University. The initiative is supported by collaborative partners the Victorian Department of Health and the Association of Australian Medical Research Institutes (AAMRI).

Centre Vision

To ensure that sex and gender are routinely considered in health and medical research, policy, and practice, with a view to improving health outcomes and reducing health inequities for all Australians, not only women and girls, but also men and boys, people with variations of sex characteristics (Intersex), trans and gender diverse people.

The Centre endorses a strong intersectional approach to sex and gender research, policy, and practice, acknowledging the multiple factors that intersect to impact on health outcomes and health inequities. The Centre has prioritised engagement with First Nations people in its establishment and growth.

The Centre will:

Undertake and support the conduct of high-quality research.

Facilitate the translation of research into evidence-informed policies and practices. 

Build capacity in addressing sex and gender health and medical inequities, via training and education. 

Communicate and advocate for the integration of sex and gender in health and medicine.

Engage and collaborate with end-users, communities and other stakeholders to advance culturally appropriate activities. 

The national Centre for Sex and Gender Equity in Health and Medicine is established following decades of research and advocacy. The Centre is crucial to coordinate national efforts, to promote good practice, drive translation and education, and support inclusive research to advance health outcomes for all Australians.

The official website for the Centre for Sex and Gender Equity in Health and Medicine will be launched later this year. Thank you to our donors and collaborative partners for their generous support.

The Centre for Sex and Gender Equity in Health and Medicine acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to Elders past, and present.
