The Five Year Plan of Action for implementing the Gender Equality Policy aims to guide the Pan American Sanitary Bureau and the Member States that make up the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) in the implementation of the Gender Equality Policy, thereby contributing to reducing gender inequities in health.

The Plan of Action includes specific indicators and assigns these to responsible entities for monitoring and reporting on the Policy’s implementation. The strategy and indicators have been widely consulted with representatives of ministries of health, women’s ministries, academia and other civil society organizations, especially women’s groups and other gender equality advocates, as well as United Nations agencies.
