Gender, Sexuality, and Health

Participants interacting with each other at a conference

The Gender, Sexuality and Health (GSH) Research Cluster explores gender and sexuality as they intersect with social determinants of health (such as race, ethnicity, age, and class) throughout the lifespan.

Research findings address key health challenges, inequities, and inequalities between and among different subpopulations.

The cluster focuses on community-based scholarship and partnerships with the community.


Research Areas:

  • Health of men, women, and children
  • Violence against women and children
  • Gender and violence in communities
  • GSH issues in the context of  the family
  • Gendered practices in sexual and reproductive health
  • Social marginalization of women and men of sexual minority status
  • Stigma and discrimination of transgendered/transsexual populations
