Public Health (PBH)

In order to obtain reliable and comprehensive data on the health needs of women as well as to ensure that women's health needs are served, in developing grant applications and consistent with the objectives and nature of the studies and research project, the department of health shall include gender-specific questions to determine whether the research and studies will impact primarily men or women and whether there are significant differences between the sexes in the outcome of the research or studies.

  For purposes of this section, studies and research shall mean any studies or research for which the department of health provides funds. It shall not apply to any grant for which there are contrary indications in federal regulations.
