Immigrant and Racialized Women’s Health project (IRWHP) uses a collaborative multidisciplinary approach to bring together various stakeholders to synthesize existing research in this area to inform health planning and management, clinical practice, and policy to ensure that health services in Ontario are evidence-based, culturally-safe, effective and equitable, and gender-specific.
IRWHP focuses on three health priority areas for immigrant and racialized women: mental health, health promotion and prevention of chronic illnesses, and maternal/child health.
Ryerson University in partnership with York University, University of Toronto, and the Health For All Clinic of Markham Stouffville Hospital will function as a health Knowledge exchange and transfer (KTE) team to ensure timely and successful completion of this project.
IRWHP is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care – Ontario
