Our COVID-19 Research Fund was established to allow researchers to respond quickly and effectively to the emerging needs of women and their communities during this time.
While no one is untouched by the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, we know from past epidemics that the lasting effects will disproportionately affect women.
The Women’s Health Research Institute (WHRI) is leading a ground-breaking study titled RESPPONSE (Rapid Evidence Study of a Provincial Population Based Cohort for Gender and Sex). They are examining two important topics: COVID-19’s prevalence in the population of BC; and how sex and gender intersect with the impacts of the public health measures.
Make a donation today to help support this vital research and ensure the pandemic does not exacerbate existing inequities already faced by women in BC.
Dr. Luis Nacul is an international renowned researcher and is the Medical and Research Director of the Complex Chronic Disease Program at BC Women’s Hospital + Health Centre. He and his interdisciplinary clinical team and their partners are seeking support to launch innovative, patient centered research projects to answer questions related to COVID-19 and complex chronic diseases.
With your support, their work will accelerate progress in developing cost-effective treatments for those with complex chronic diseases – and will also shed new light on the best treatments and supports for the growing number of COVID-19 survivors who suffer from long term chronic fatigue.
