The public health community increasingly recognizes the importance of incorporating strategies to address gender equality in programs to improve health outcomes for women, men, and children. To strengthen gender integration efforts in the island nation of Timor-Leste, the Gender, Policy, and Measurement (GPM) program, funded by the USAID Asia and Middle East (A/ME) Bureaus, undertook a gender assessment. The GPM program is implemented by the Health Policy Project and MEASURE Evaluation. The assessment aimed to discover the normative, socioeconomic, and political variables that impede or facilitate utilization of health services in Timor-Leste. This analysis can be used by donors and implementing organizations to incorporate gender into the formulation, implementation, and evaluation of family planning and maternal, neonatal and child health programs.
