Health of the Indigenous People Series No. 5:

Incorporating a Gender Perspective in the Work with Indigenous Peoples

This document was presented in the 15th Meeting of the Special Subcommittee on Women, Health, and Development -- Washington, D.C., 3-4 April 1995

The following document refers to PAHO's initiative to promote the health of indigenous peoples of the Americas (SAPIA) and offers some insights as to how a gender approach might be incorporated into health policies and programs that seek the participation of indigenous populations, not just as passive beneficiaries of outside actions, but as catalysts and shapers of their own health maintenance and care.
