Abstract:

The Gender Department within the Afghanistan Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) was established in 2010 as a step towards ensuring gender equity and mainstreaming. A landscape analysis was conducted in the first quarter of 2013 to review the existing health-related tools and datasets that exist within the MOPH, determine the process through which indicators could be included in various tools used by the MOPH departments such as the Health Management Information System (HMIS), monitoring and evaluation (M&E) and surveillance departments, and to obtain stakeholders’ views on the feasibility of revising/introducing new gender health indicators into the existing tools. As part of the process, key publicly available policy documents and monitoring tools were reviewed followed by key informant interviews to better understand the tools and processes put in place as well as identify other documents that may have been missed. The findings showed that there is adequate data within the MOPH on gender-sensitive indicators. The Gender Directorate should strive to use the existing data for program and finance gender mainstreaming activities.
