Gender and health equity resource guide. An overview of health-related gender sensitive interventions

The purpose of this resource guide is to give an overview of gender sensitive interventions and initiatives directly or indirectly related to health that have been tried at macro and micro levels. Through mapping different experiences, the guide provides information on lessons learned, results achieved, and the challenges that have emerged in promoting gender and health equity. It includes information on gender-sensitive approaches, working methods, practical methodologies and tools which can be incorporated into policies and programmes. The guide is made up of five different sections: gender mainstreaming and organisational change; implementing rights and accountability through networks and advocacy; tools to enhance and implement gender equity; lifespan perspective in gender and health, and issues in gender and health equity. In stressing the need to develop gender strategies for health equity which are appropriate to specific contexts and resources, the text is illustrated with case studies and examples of good practice from around the world.
