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.
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.
Administrative data is crucial to better understand violence against women (VAW) and to inform prevention and responses to VAW. This publication identifies eight steps for improving the collection and use of VAW administrative data and makes recommendations for data producers and policymakers.
This Evaluation Handbook is a practical guide to help those initiating, managing and/or using gender-responsive evaluations by providing direction, advice and tools for every step in the evaluation process: planning, preparation, conduct, reporting, evaluation use and follow up. Although specific to UN Women evaluation processes, the Evaluation Handbook may be useful to international development evaluators and professionals, particularly those working on gender equality, women’s empowerment and human rights.
This guidance note focuses on country gender mainstreaming responses within national programmes and across sectors. Using a technical illustrative approach, it unpacks the types and sequencing of decisions and actions at each level and step of decision-making—when laws, policies, budgets, and statistics for service delivery and programmes are being developed, operationalized and/or assessed. The guidance note discusses major changes in gender mainstreaming norms within the current global development context and provides general principles for implementing gender mainstreaming at the country level
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 Resource Guide and Toolkit has been developed to help both organizations and individual practitioners and experts to address intersectionality in policies and in programmes. It may be used by individuals or teams to assess their own knowledge, attitudes and practice, at a programme level as a supplement to existing design, adaptation and assessment processes or at policy level to better understand and address the different and intersecting effects of policy on marginalised persons.
