Describes the importance of gender analysis in health and the negative consequences seen to have resulted from a lack of consideration for sex and gender differences in health research and studies, as well as in clinical practice. Method: The research team reviewed a vast international literature on gender, sex, health, women's health, development and medicine. In addition, the team interviewed thirty-two key informants across four countries who are specialists in aspects of health research. Conclusion: The clear development of a focus for women's health research within the evolving CIHR is needed to correct the uneveness of the evidence base, attract more researchers to the speciality and encourage a comprehensive set of variables to be included across the entire field of health research. Most importantly, it will provide better health outcomes for Canadian women and girls and their families.

Discusses the role of industry support in the work of the Centres of Excellence for Women's Health. The Centres of Excellence face reduced government funding and the maximization of their resources, in search of funding they may enter into relationships with for-profit organizations; however, the centres must evaluate this option carefully. NGOs must look at the impact such a connection could have on the organization's mission, existing sector partners and collaborators, and internal culture. This paper weighs the pros and cons of developing relationships with for-profit organizations.

Using the data from a number of the surveys conducted over the last 10 years by Sante Quebec, this study examines the health characteristics of two populations of Aboriginal women of northern Quebec compared to those of women in the rest of the province. The northern populations had a larger proportion of young women. Aboriginal women have heavier family responsibilities than other Quebec women. Inuit women had a much higher prevalence of smoking and drug use. Alcohol consumption was less frequent in northern women, but the quantity consumed was higher compared to other Quebec women. Cree women tended to be more obese, had higher levels of blood glucose and lower levels of cholesterol. Inuit women tended to have lower rates of hypertension and higher rates of declared hearing problems and mental disorders. The similarities and differences observed among these three populations of women can assist decision-makers in setting priorities with regards to maintaining and improving their health.
