Each of us, without exception, has a sex that is influenced by gender roles and the world around us. To fully meet women’s health care needs, we need to broaded our approach to the clinical care from a focus on reproductive concerns to a perspective that considers both biological (sex) and psychosocial (gender) factors, and the interaction between the two.
Bringing a sex and gender perspective to medical education and through to clinical practice assures a comprehensive understanding and sensitivity that ultimately will improve medical care for all. For more information, contact us: SGWHC
To integrate sex and gender knowledge into medical education and practice to improve healthcare for all.
The SGWHC will fulfill our vision by endeavoring to:
· Provide a digital library of evidence-based sex and gender educational resources
· Increase awareness that sex and gender matters for individuals, clinical outcomes, and in health systems
· Promote sex and gender related collaborations among diverse groups and individuals
The SGWHC efforts are possible through the generosity of our Founding Partners: American Medical Women’s Association, the American College of Women’s Health Physicians, the Society of Women’s Health Research, and the Laura Bush Institute for Women’s Health.
