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.
