This toolkit aims to strengthen the capacity of researchers working on infectious diseases of poverty by incorporating an intersectional gender approach.
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.
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 gender assessment tool for national HIV responses (GAT) is intended to assist countries in assessing the HIV epidemic, context and response from a gender perspective and in making the HIV responses gender transformative, equitable and rights based and, as such, more effective. The GAT is designed to support the development or review of national strategic plans and to inform submissions to country investment cases and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund).
This checklist provides a set of practical actions for countries to implement and ensure gender equality and equity in the deployment of COVID-19 vaccines. The checklist will aid you to address gender power inequalities in accessing vaccination, including women’s limited mobility, decision-making power, access to resources and their risks of experiencing sexual harassment, exploitation, and other forms of gender-based violence.
Provides a framework and concrete steps for building attention to gender inequality into the monitoring and evaluation of sexual and reproductive health and HIV responses, into the information systems that generate evidence, and into data analysis. This tool enables the generation of strategic information (that is, data and evidence for decision-making) that supports mainstreaming gender in national plans and programmes. The core content of the tool is applied to M&E of the HIV epidemic and response. However, the tool can be easily applied to M&E of SRH as well as other health problems and programmes.
