The purpose of the eToolkit is to provide practical, "how-to" methodologies and tools on gender that are designed to move health practitioners and managers from awareness and commitment to direct application and practice in policy and program design, implementation, research, capacity building and monitoring and evaluation.
Technical areas of health covered in the eToolkit include, but are not limited to, sexual/reproductive health and family planning; maternal health; child health; HIV/AIDS; infectious disease; water and sanitation; and nutrition and food security.
The IGWG Gender and Health eToolkit is intended to be interactive. A discussion board allows users to post comments, suggest the inclusion of other resources, and share ideas about how to use the eToolkit. The eToolkit will be updated continuously to include new, relevant tools as they become available. Offline copies of the toolkit on CD or flash drive are available upon request.
