Prairie Women's Health Centre of Excellence



Gender Quote

To date, Prairie Women's Health has trained over 400 people, from Saskatoon to Churchill to Belize. Participants felt they had challenged their assumptions, recognized bias in their knowledge, expanded their awareness of the health issues and needs of women in their regions and advanced important change. They commented:

“Sometimes we just need someone like you to come in and ask the questions. We have all the information”

“Knowing how to use data is such a powerful way to do direct planning”

“It highlights important issues in health care that are neglected”

“I think it really helps you to understand and translate the statistical data in a more concrete, practical way”

“I’m going back to my survey to reanalyze by gender”


 “I would love an opportunity to learn more… to develop this as a policy forum and learn also from other regions”
