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-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.
This guide contains information, strategies and resources to help HIV programmers identify and meet the needs of women and girls in all their diversity. It contains tools, evidence and good practice to ensure that HIV programming responds to and addresses harmful gender norms, structures and stereotypes that act as a barrier to HIV prevention, treatment and care, and the realisation of sexual and reproductive health and rights. This guide supports a more nuanced understanding of gender-related barriers and how aspects of identities intersect with HIV, gender norms, sexual and reproductive health and rights and access to health services.
The tool was originally developed by Jhpiego Mozambique with providers and program planners, and has been adapted, piloted and refined in several low and middle-income countries. The standards are organized by different aspects of service delivery (e.g., facility readiness, clinical care, etc.). The toolkit aims to provide participants with knowledge and skills to provide high-quality, gender-sensitive, and transformative services to individuals and couples including females, males, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) clients.
The toolkit reflects numerous calls to action for equitable representation of women in global health decision-making. The strategies shared in the toolkit’s modules apply an intersectional lens and complement existing leadership curricula, providing tools to health care workers and managers to advance gender equality. The approach is particularly relevant in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, but it can also be used long-term to spur greater inclusion of women’s voices in global health.
