While the importance of a gender lens for family planning/reproductive health and maternal and child health (FP/RH/MCH) policies and programs has been widely recognized, as of yet, most efforts to assess gender within these programs have focused on service delivery. This document presents a scorecard to aid in the review of how well gender is integrated into the governance of FP/RH/MCH policies and institutions. Based on the health governance triangle, the scorecard guides users through key indicators that look at the state, citizens, and providers, and provides a simple method for analyzing findings for useful dissemination.
This course explains how to design and implement FP/SRH programs and services that engage men and boys in supportive, affirming, and gender equitable ways.
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.
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.
EMERGE is an initiative focused on measurement of gender equality and empowerment.

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 toolkit is designed to provide practical guidance to OCHA staff to effectively integrate gender into their day-to-day activities.The toolkit comprises two sections.

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.
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.
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).
