March 11, 2019   |   Blog

A new research project co-led by PACE Society and CGSHE, in partnership with QMUNITY and Trans Care BC, has received new 3-year funding from the Vancouver Foundation through a Participatory Action Research grant.  This new community-based study will investigate the factors that impact the accessibility, acceptability and quality of healthcare for transgender, Two Spirit, non-binary and gender diverse (trans) individuals in BC. 

The Vancouver Foundation’s Participatory Action Research Grant program aims to support collaborative research projects that are co-led by community members and researchers to learn more about the root causes of pressing issues impacting the health of communities.  The focus of the fund is research that explores social determinants of health, using methodology that engages community members in all stages of the research process.

We look forward to sharing more news and updates as the project gets started!
