The handbook is based on and complements existing global and country-specific handbooks and training materials for law enforcement. It covers in depth areas such as: gender-responsive police investigations; prevention; intersectionality; survivor-centred approaches; promoting positive masculinities; coordination; institution-building; and emerging issues such as online and ICT-facilitated violence against women and girls. The handbook also includes guidance on responding to violence against women and girls during crises, including pandemics.
GENPAR, or the Gender in Infectious Disease Epidemic Preparedness And Response Toolkit, is a set of benchmarks and tools to integrate gender into select core capacities of the International Health Regulations (IHR) 2005. GENPAR provides a set of actions (WHAT to do) as well as a range of tools (HOW to do it) to achieve each benchmark in integrating gender into the preparedness and response capacities covered by the toolkit. Using GENPAR, gender can be integrated into selected capacities step-by-step.
CARE’s Rapid Gender Analysis (RGA) toolkit provides information about the different needs, capacities and coping strategies of women, men, boys and girls in a crisis situation. The RGA toolkit contains guidance on how to do every step of a Rapid Gender Analysis, and can be adapted to suit each country’s unique situation. In addition to the Guidance Notes, the RGA toolkit includes tools for primary data collection, secondary data review, analysing the data collected, and making recommendations.
