The MESSAGE Initiative: Integrating sex and gender considerations in UK biomedical, health and care research
Sex and gender influence the medical conditions people develop, the symptoms they experience, the treatments and quality of care they receive, and their overall outcomes.
Studying and understanding sex and gender differences and similarities is essential for ensuring the safety and effectiveness of medicines and care, to improve the health of all people in the UK. We are collaborating with the MESSAGE (Medical Science Sex and Gender Equity) initiative to help co-design a sex and gender policy and guidance for researchers about how to consider sex and gender in research.
Change in the culture in this space, will ensure the UK cements its position as a world leader in rigorous, sustainable science and provides the most effective evidence to improve outcomes for patients and society. We are committed to providing our research community with the guidance, skills and tools to ensure that future research meets the needs of all people, no matter their sex or gender.
