The specific objectives of Gender, Work and Health Chair Program are:
• To support leading researchers to develop their programs of research in gender, work and health.
• To build capacity for research on work and health that accounts for gender and sex.
• To foster the translation of that research into gender- and sex-sensitive policies and interventions that improve workers' health.
Each award is valued at $800,000 over five years.
