Gender Equality and Health

Global attention continues to recognize the importance of tackling gender inequalities to improves women’s and girls’ health and well-being in Africa. The programme undertakes rigorous research and continues to use the evidence it generates to strengthen programmatic and policy responses to women, girls and gender inequalities in health, with a specific focus on the HIV and AIDS epidemics across Africa and globally. The team is actively engaged in ensuring research translates into meaningful policy interventions with particular attention to reducing gender-based violence and supporting the realization of young people’s sexual and reproductive health and rights.
