WHO gender strategy
WHO commits to gender equity in health, in line with the Millennium Development Goals. The WHO Strategy for integrating gender analysis and actions into the work of WHO, was endorsed in resolution WHA60.25 at the Sixtieth World Health Assembly in May 2007. The strategy calls for the mainstreaming of gender equity approaches throughout WHO in order to support Member States in achieving gender and health equity. The strategy builds on the WHO gender policy of 2002.
The WHO gender strategy has four strategic directions:
building WHO capacity for gender analysis and planning
bringing gender into the mainstream of WHO’s management
promoting the use of sex-disaggregated data and gender analysis
Global conventions, platforms, resolutions and protocols
