This brief explores what gender-responsive M&E is, why it is important, and how to integrate it into health programs, with a particular focus on reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health.
This brief addresses gender inequities that health workers who provide maternal and newborn health services experience. Key issues faced by providers include long working hours, poor remuneration, lack of training opportunities, violence, and restrictions on mobility. Example indicators under each area are provided.
Designed for social and behaviour change (SBC), immunization and health teams, as well as national partners responsible for the planning and implementation of immunization demand efforts, this report provides guidance on how to integrate a gender perspective with concrete recommendations. The report starts by introducing demand generation in the context of immunization and the gender responsive continuum. Then, it outlines recommendations for integrating gender into immunization demand promotion activities using the SBC programme cycle as a framework. Illustrative examples are embedded throughout in order to make this resource user-friendly and actionable.
This toolkit was developed to support organisations, step-by-step, in their journey towards gender transformation. It contains a participatory gender self-assessment in 3 stages designed to assess the organisational commitments and practices, and to which extent they integrate a gender-transformative approach. It supports the process of self-reflection about how gender-transformative approaches are realised and practised within the organisation’s own structures and networks. It provides guidelines to take affirmative action through an Organisational Gender Action Plan (OGAP) which can be implemented and measured over time.
The Gender Competency Self-Assessment Tool for Family Planning Providers provides a method for measuring the knowledge, attitudes, and skills of individual providers in six domains of gender competency. By completing this self-assessment, providers can determine their current level of gender competency, and thereby identify areas of strength and weakness in each domain.
This document provides practical guidance for managing and conducting a gender assessment in the health sector. The guide lays out concise, user-friendly directions that are useful for USAID Mission staff as well as other USG partners in carrying out a gender assessment that gathers the necessary information about gender dynamics in a given setting to inform health programming. The objective of this guide is to enable USAID and other USG partners to collect and review gender data relevant to health, and use that information to shape health programming in order to promote gender equality and improve health outcomes.
Given the impact of gender inequality on the sexual and reproductive health of women and girls and the health of women and their children, UN Women developed this programming guide that provides practical guidance and tools to understand the influence of gender inequality on SRMNCAH, and how to effectively integrate gender equality into programming. The guide serves as an important resource to complement and build on existing guidance and tools to strengthen gender equality efforts to improve health outcomes for women, children, and adolescents.
The Compendium is intended as a companion to the 2015 Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Guidelines for Integrating Gender-Based Violence Interventions in Humanitarian Action and its companion resource, the GBV Pocket Guide. The guidance was developed through the efforts of 15 organizations who contributed expertise in the inception, design and review of the document. The process was led and funded through support of CARE USA on behalf the CVA and GBV advisory group of the GBV Guidelines Reference Group.
The guidelines assist in the mainstreaming of gender considerations in the planning and budget formulation processes, as well as in the monitoring and evaluation of the implementation of the same. The guidelines assist technical officers and policy arm of government in understanding what the concept of ‘Mainstreaming in Planning’ entails, as well as enabling them and stakeholders to track the outcomes of their efforts. The ultimate goal is to make sure the budgeting process in Kenya is equally responsive to needs and priorities of women, men, girls and boys, respectively.
