Gender Mainstreaming Checklist for the Health Sector

10-Feb-2009

The purpose of the Checklist is to provide Bank staff as well as consultants with a tool to facilitate effective analysis and identification of the gender issues in the health sector, to design appropriate gender sensitive strategies/components, allocations of resources and definition of monitoring indicators through all stages of the project/program cycle. For effective gender analysis and mainstreaming in projects, the Checklists should be used together with the Bank’s Operations Manual and the Environmental and Social Procedures (ESAP). On the use of the ESAP, the preparation of gender-sensitive terms of reference for Environmental and Social Assessment studies should be a key consideration to demonstrate good practices in mainstreaming gender in any Bank funded sector intervention, including health sector projects.
