IASC Guidelines for Gender Based ViolenceInterventions in Humanitarian Settings
(1997) Developed by PAHO's Woman, Health and Development Program in 1997 (currently the Gender, Ethnicity and Health Unit), this guide provides a structure and some tools for a workshop on looking at health through a gender lens, understanding men’s and women’s health-illness processes and improving the equity with which roles, responsibilities and rewards are distributed in health promotion and care.
The guide provides a basis for discussion and advocacy in a process aimed at building consensus around the identification of problems, the establishment of priorities for action, the formulation or reformulation of policy objectives, and the definition of indicators and strategies for monitoring application of the resulting policies.
Gender-based analysis (GBA) is a Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) policy. The PAHO Gender, Ethnicity and Health Office (GEH) has a mandate that includes promoting informed decisions and strengthening national capacity to generate, analyze and effectively use health indicators that recognize and accommodate gender and diversity approaches.
This guide describes how to integrate gender-based analysis using health surveillance data and data from surveys or other sources to develop, change and improve health policy, planning and programming.
