Including considerations of sex and gender in clinical research is essential to understanding the biomedical
characteristics linked to health and ensures effective translational applications in the healthcare system that
meet the needs of the diverse population. Although funding policies during the last three decades have
promoted inclusion of women as research subjects more targeted, data-based, multi-dimensional approaches
can assist in creating more effective guidance to reduce sex/gender bias. Reduction of sex/gender bias can
lead to more responsible health science, more equitable clinical practices, and more cost-effective health
policy.


Objectives:

1.Analyze the prevalence of sex/gender-reporting from a historical perspective

2.Examine factors associated with sex/gender reporting

3.Provide normative recommendations to reduce sex/gender bias
