World-class centre tackles sex and gender inequities in health and medicine


The George Institute | 28 Mar 2024

A new national research, policy and education centre to improve health outcomes for all Australians will challenge the ‘one-size-fits-all’ male-centric approach to medical care that results in significant disadvantage for women and girls, people with variations of sex characteristics (intersex people), trans and gender-diverse people.  

The Centre for Sex and Gender Equity in Health and Medicine, launched in March 2024 at UNSW Sydney, is an initiative of The George Institute for Global Health, the Australian Human Rights Institute at UNSW Sydney, and Deakin University, with support from collaborative partners, the Victorian Department of Health and the Association of Australian Medical Research Institutes (AAMRI).
