International health programs and donors throughout the world increasingly recognize the importance of promoting gender equality to improve health and development outcomes. International initiatives such as the Sustainable Development Goals include specific gender equality goals and targets. Yet, translating gender equality goals into action is challenging. Practical tools for integrating gender into health policies and programs are needed. The USAID-funded Health Policy Project (HPP) prepared this brief to provide policymakers, donors, and program managers with real examples of methods for promoting gender equality in family planning, maternal and child health, and gender-based violence policies and programs.
