Gender Mainstreaming in Health: A Practical Guide.
This packet takes a gender perspective to achieving health equity and provides evidence to show how biological factors interact with gender norms, roles and relations (or socio-cultural factors) to affect the health of women and men and that of their communities.
The guide provides a basis for discussion and advocacy in a process aimed at building consensus around the identification of problems, the establishment of priorities for action, the formulation or reformulation of policy objectives, and the definition of indicators and strategies for monitoring application of the resulting policies.
(1997) Developed by PAHO's Woman, Health and Development Program in 1997 (currently the Gender, Ethnicity and Health Unit), this guide provides a structure and some tools for a workshop on looking at health through a gender lens, understanding men’s and women’s health-illness processes and improving the equity with which roles, responsibilities and rewards are distributed in health promotion and care.
