Donor Policies & Resources

Over the last 20 years, most bilateral and multilateral donor agencies have developed gender integration and mainstreaming policies as a demonstration of their governments' commitments to international agreements and in recognition of the vital role gender equality plays in supporting economic growth, effective governance, and healthy and well-educated populations. This section of the Toolkit contains key resources on gender policies within USAID and The Global Fund.

For a broader selection of USAID gender resources beyond policies, go to the USAID and IGWG web sites.
