This book provides the first resource dedicated to critically examining gender and sex in study designs, methods, and analysis in health research. In order to produce ethical, accurate, and effective research findings it is vital to integrate both sex (biological characteristics) and gender (socially constructed factors) into any health study. This book draws attention to some of the methodological complexities in this enterprise and offers ways to thoughtfully address these by drawing on empirical examples across a range of topics and disciplines.

Policy, Process, and Products
Policy, process, and products

Despite thoughtfully applying methods amid aspirations for advancing the health of boys, girls, men, and women, we are often left contemplating and/or explicitly asking to address the “So what?” question. Caught between a rock (clinical practice) and a hard place (health policy), often meandering without a coherent map, researchers try to connect or stay connected to key stakeholders as a means of sharing their research findings in hopes of making a difference. In addressing the “So what?” question, the final three chapters offer key insights to global, macro policy issues, as well as some of the process and product challenges and considerations around knowledge exchange that can emerge.
