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.
Breakthrough ACTION developed the Gender Analysis Toolkit for Vaccine Response for RCCE actors working with national health authorities and other partners to develop, implement, and monitor a vaccine response. This toolkit provides practical guidance to identify gender related barriers that need to be addressed and identify opportunities that can be leveraged to enable a gender equitable vaccine response that increases coverage for all.
EMERGE is an initiative focused on measurement of gender equality and empowerment. The platform is designed as a repository of measures and resources for survey researchers and practitioners working on development, program monitoring and evaluation, and for consideration of state or national indicators.
The tool uses a gender analysis matrix to interrogate the ways in which gender inequities or power relations manifest to affect each of the recommendations within the WHO Guideline on Health Policy and System Support to Optimize Community Health Worker Programmes. Policymakers and programmers can use the tool to: conduct research with CHWs on specific aspects of CHW work related to gender; develop CHW and gender related indicators; develop gender responsive CHW interventions or programmes; and/or engage with CHWs, CHW supervisors and policy makers on the gendered nature of their work.
The Gender-Transformative Framework for Nutrition is a Canadian-led, evidence-based conceptual model that expands the potential of nutrition programs to tackle gender inequalities. The Framework leverages existing literature and theoretical frameworks by applying systems thinking to critically examine the multi-sectoral drivers of malnutrition, while placing empowerment and gender equality at its centre.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Gender Equality Toolbox is made up of tools that can guide foundation staff and partners in designing, managing and measuring the results and impact of gender intentional and gender transformative programs and investments.

This toolkit provides practical guidance to support gender analysis and the integration of gender considerations into UNICEF programming, with intent. This toolkit addresses key questions such as: How can we make our analysis sharper in order to uncover gender barriers? What can we do to unblock systems bottlenecks and drive gender-responsive and gender transformative programming? What is needed to promote gender inequality as well as women and girls’ empowerment? How do UNICEF systems support measuring our programming, documenting our results and enable us to express a compelling storyline?
This toolkit is a step towards strengthening the institutional and individual capacity to undertake gender mainstreaming in UNICEF’s programmes and to advance policy commitments on gender equality. This toolkit provides practical guidance to assist UNICEF staff to effectively integrate gender into all aspects of their work and all stages of the programme cycle. The empowerment of women and girls is most effective if gender is a primary focus of all interventions – starting with assessment, analysis and design phases and through to implementation, monitoring and evaluation.
This checklist is an assessment tool to determine the extent to which gender equality is considered in a programme’s design, implementation and scale-up. Itt provides practical guidance and tools to understand the influence of gender inequality on sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health (SRMNCAH), and how to effectively integrate gender equality into programming. The guide will: Help users to explore how and why gender inequality is a key determinant of SRMNCAH; teach users about types of interventions to address gender inequalities; show users how to identify actions to support human-rights-based and gender-responsive interventions.
