Technical Areas of Health

The tools in this section assist in integrating attention to gender in the design, implementation, and monitoring and evaluation of programs in the following technical areas: Adolescent and child health, gender-based violence (GBV), HIV/AIDS, infectious diseases, maternal health, nutrition, and sexual/reproductive health and family planning (RH/FP). Over the past 10 years there has been an explosion of tools that address gender and HIV/AIDS, GBV, and RH/FP. Other areas have fewer tools. As an awareness of the impact of gender on health outcomes increases, it is likely that there will be a similar growth in the development of tools for other health sectors. We welcome suggestions and contributions from users of the Toolkit. If you have or know of additional tools, especially in technical areas other than HIV/AIDs and RH, please send your suggestions to our feedback form.
