Gender and Rights in Reproductive and Maternal Health
Manual for a Learning Workshop
It is crucially important to increase awareness of gender equality to provide analytical and practical tools for health program managers and others to address gender and reproductive rights. Moreover, it is vital to ensure both men's and women's participation in these efforts.
This manual is intended for use in facilitating a 6-day workshop on gender and rights in reproductive and maternal health for health managers, policy-makers and others with responsibilities in reproductive health. Other stakeholders working on advocacy and policy and program change in reproductive health, such as nongovernmental organizations and international partners may also find it useful. Although designed as a stand-alone course, it could be integrated with pre- or in-service programs on health systems, rights and gender.
