OVERVIEW

This resource pack provides relevant knowledge to facilitate mainstreaming gender-responsive approaches into reproductive health programmes, and the inclusion of specific aspects of gender inequality and disadvantage into national policy frameworks. It focuses primarily on health, particularly reproductive health; on HIV/AIDS; and on violence against women as it relates to health services. The materials included in the resource pack are intended for use in developing countries and look at how gender-responsive budgeting can be used to direct attention to those who are most in need and those who are disadvantaged by their gender, economic status, location and other characteristics.
