The Centre for Gender and Sexual Health Equity is a University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University-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 (LGBTQ/2S+), 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 100 staff and trainees and hosts a large graduate cohort; a UBC FLEX MD student elective; a UBC fourth 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; and interdisciplinary fellowships.
