Description :

Given the impact of gender inequality on the sexual and reproductive health of women and girls and the health of women and their children, UN Women developed a programming guide “Promoting Gender Equality in Sexual, Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health” that provides practical guidance and tools to understand the influence of gender inequality on sexual, reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent health (SRMNCAH) and how to effectively integrate gender equality into programming.

The guide serves as an important resource to complement and build on existing guidance and tools to strengthen gender equality efforts to improve health outcomes for women, children and adolescents. It is designed to help users to explore how and why gender inequality is a key determinant of SRMNCAH; to learn about types of interventions to address gender inequalities as a root cause of poor SRMNCAH outcomes by providing examples of evidence-based interventions; to identify actions to support human-rights-based and gender-responsive interventions to improve gender equality and SRMNCAH outcomes for women, children and adolescents.
