The Centre for Gender and Sexual Health Equity (CGSHE) is a UBC- and SFU-affiliated academic centre that hosts a number of community-based and clinical research projects to reduce inequities in sexual health among marginalized and stigmatized populations, including street-involved populations, sex workers, sexual and gender minority populations (LGBTQ2S+), Indigenous, racialized and im/migrant populations, and cis and trans women living with HIV. Our projects are grounded in community-based principles and locally operate out of a community/clinical research office in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside.
CGSHE currently includes more than 80 staff and hosts a large graduate cohort; a UBC FLEX MD student elective; a UBC 4th Year Undergraduate MD Elective in Applied Sexual Health Research; a Migrant Health Field Course at the US-Mexico Border Region, co-hosted by Simon Fraser University and University of California – San Diego; MPH practicums (UBC, SFU, Global); and interdisciplinary fellowships.
