FHI 360 Gender Integration Framework

More and more, evidence shows that integrating a gender perspective into health and development programs can
improve program outcomes and increase equality between girls and boys and between women and men. In light of this evidence, promoting gender equality is a major focus of global health and development donors- including the U.S. Government-and high-level international commitments such as the Millennium Development
Goals (MDGs). This framework offers guidance for how. research and programs can systematically identify and challenge gender-based inequalities that pose barriers to health and development.
