AHRQ expands women's health program to include gender-based research

AHRQ is expanding its research on women's health to include gender-based analysis, a field that is receiving increased emphasis within the Department of Health and Human Services and among other stakeholders. To lead the Agency's involvement in this coordinated effort, AHRQ has designated Rosaly Correa-de-Araujo, MD, M.Sc., Ph.D., as the Director of Women's Health and Gender-Based Research.

In her new role, Dr. Correa will direct the development of an intramural and extramural research agenda that will initially focus on gender analysis across diverse racial and ethnic groups on the quality and outcomes of care for chronic conditions. This new field of inquiry has created a broad range of research opportunities and, consequently, the chance to improve treatment and disease outcomes through interventions that address the specific needs of women and men of any age, race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status. Dr. Correa will continue to direct all women's health priority issues for the Agency in close coordination with other Federal partners.
