Capacity Building Tools

Capacity Building Tools

To support WHO staff and partners, the Department of Gender, Women and Health has developed (in collaboration with internal and external partners) several tools to promote gender mainstreaming in health sector activities. The types of tools available include:

  • Training materials on gender and health
  • Policy/programme assessment tools
  • Programmatic guidelines
  • Research tools

All capacity building tools provide practical guidance to empower users to detect where and how gender inequalities have negative impacts on health and develop appropriate health sector responses.

The menu on the right includes links to more information about the WHO Gender Mainstreaming Manual. See below for additional capacity building tools on gender and health.
