The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR)1 has developed this on line tool to assist applicants to CIHR funding on the integration of the gender dimension into their research. This is due to the CIHR requirement that all grant applicants respond to mandatory questions about whether their research designs include sex and gender (effective December 2010). This requirement is part of CIHR’s wider strategy for meeting the requirements of a 2009 federal government (Health Portfolio) policy on sex and gender based analysis.
