This fact sheet, part of a series on health workforce statistics, provides recommendations on gender analysis of the health workforce.
A strategy for gender analysis of the health workforce should include four key components:
- Building capacity at the international, national and sub-national levels for gender analysis in workforce policy and planning;
- Reflection of gender in national health workforce development budgets;
- Promoting the use of sex-disaggregated data in monitoring and evaluation activities at all levels; and
- Establishing accountability.
