About this Textbook

This book is the first to focus on sex- and gender-based analysis (SGBA) in public health, addressing the dearth of thinking, practice, and publication on SGBA and public health. 

The Canadian government is a global leader in seeking gender equity and mandating SGBA in federal initiatives, programs, and policies, continuing to advocate for the uptake of SGBA. However, there is differential uptake of SGBA in many fields, and public health is lagging behind. This book analyses the movement toward SGBA in Canada and internationally, highlighting some key examples of public health concern such as HIV/AIDS and tobacco use.
An international group of experts in the fields of SGBA, public health, program evaluation, policy development, and research comprise the authorship of the book. Collectively, the team of authors and editors have deep expertise in SGBA and public health nationally and internationally and have published widely in the SGBA literature.
Topics explored among the chapters – organized under three thematic content areas: the SGBA terrain in public health, illustrative examples from the field, and the implications of SGBA in public health – include:

  • Sex- and Gender-Based Analyses and Advancing Population Health
  • Beyond “Women’s Cancers”: Sex and Gender in Cancer Health and Care
  • Women, Alcohol and the Public Health Response – Moving Forward from Avoidance, Inattention and Inaction to Gender-Based Design
  • Understanding Pandemics Through a Sex- and Gender-Based Analysis Plus (SGBA+) Lens
  • Sex- and Gender-Based Analysis and the Social Determinants of Health:  Public Health, Human Rights and Incarcerated Youth
  • Gender-Transformative Public Health Approaches
Sex- and Gender-Based Analysis in Public Health is an important text for graduate-level students and trainees as well as public health practitioners in a variety of disciplines such as health promotion, nursing, health administration, public administration, sociology, political science, gender and women’s studies. The book also is an essential resource for specialists in public health policy, programming, research, and evaluation.

About the authors

Jacqueline (Jacquie) Gahagan, PhD is a medical sociologist and a Full Professor of Health Promotion in the Faculty of Health at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Jacquie teaches program planning, measurement and evaluation and serves as the Co-Director of the Atlantic Interdisciplinary Research Network for Social and Behavioural Aspects of HIV and HCV (airn.ca), which is an Atlantic regional network of over 250 researchers, policy-makers, and community-based service providers. Jacquie holds Research Associate positions with the Jean Monnet European Union Centre of Excellence, the Health Law Institute, the Beatrice Hunter Cancer Research Institute, is a Founding Fellow of the MacEachen Institute for Public Policy and Governance and is an Affiliate Scientist with the Nova Scotia Health Authority.  
Jacquie’s program of mixed-methods health promotion research focuses on evaluating policy and programming interventions using sex- and gender-based analyses (SGBA+) to address health inequities among marginalized populations including those living with or affected by HIV, HCV or other STBBIs, the scaling-up of access to innovative HIV testing technologies, older LGBTQ2I populations and housing, primary healthcare utilization among LGBTQ2I communities, and end-of-life decision-making. Prior to joining Dalhousie University, Jacquie worked as an evaluation specialist in public health at the municipal, provincial and national levels in relation to harm reduction, HIV/HCV prevention, and tobacco use cessation. 
Mary K. Bryson, PhD is Senior Associate Dean, Administration, Faculty Affairs & Innovation and Professor, Department of Language and Literacy Education, Faculty of Education, University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC, Canada. Dr. Bryson’s program of research is designed so as to contribute foundational scholarship concerning access to knowledge, gender and sexual marginality and resilience, and in so doing, to make significant contributions to a growing archive that documents the social, cultural and educational significance of networked media technologies and publics. A hallmark of the trajectory of their funded research projects is to contribute evidence concerning sexuality and gender, and the role of networked social media and information literacies that shape access to knowledge and its mobilization. Their leadership in theory-building in the areas of cognition, agency and digital culture have proven invaluable in framing humanistic models of digital and epistemic competencies particularly relevant to complex minority cultures in the 21rst Century. Vital to their contributions are Dr. Bryson’s innovative and career-long contributions in the area of intersectionality, minority stress, and non-deterministic ways of thinking about the significance of digital media and networks to members of minority groups. The Cancer's Margins project that Mary directs (www.lgbtcancer.ca) is Canada's first CIHR-funded and national investigation of sexual and gender marginality and access to/mobilization of cancer knowledge.
