(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.

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.
A POLICY DIALOGUE ON BETTER EVIDENCE TO IMPROVE WOMEN’S HEALTH THROUGH GENDER AND HEALTH STATISTICS
This document is a compilation of existing resources (reports, manuals, guidelines etc.) on mainstreaming gender in health projects, programs and policies.
(2000) Domestic Violence: Women’s Way Out is intended to draw attention to violence against women and girls as a priority problem and to identify resources that can help to address it. The situation analysis of domestic violence reveals the complexity of the problem and shows that solving it will require coordinated intersectoral policies and action, with the participation of both the State and civil society. This research protocol is the result of the cumulative work and commitment of numerous investigators, activists, and officials to address violence against women and improve the services available for women affected by it.
The development of the protocol began with the drafting and review of a preliminary version by the team of investigators in the course of three workshops. The final protocol was applied in 15 communities in 10 countries, 7 in Central America and 3 in the Andean area, and it was tailored to each country’s conditions. Through field interviews, qualitative data were collected from a wide range of women, service providers, and community members, representing groups of varying age, ethnicity, socioeconomic level, and marital status.
