Project Status

The objective of this project is to update the handbook 'Gender mainstreaming for health managers: A practical approach'. Building on the extensive and solid work already carried out on the facilitators’ guide and participant notes of the handbook, the project team will update some of the key concepts used, expanding and highlighting the concept of intersectionality, promoting non-binary approaches around gender, as well as introducing new gender, equity and human rights frameworks and tools to further support capacity building around these concepts and integration of their approaches in the work of WHO. The manual will also be complemented by a practical “how-to” guide on the use of specific gender tools and frameworks presented in the manual. The manual will adhere to adult learning principles and will have an emphasis on expanded interactive modalities for delivery.
