We are pleased to announce the release of the newly published Gender M&E eLearning course, a MEASURE Evaluation-authored eLearning course hosted on USAID’s Global Health eLearning (GHeL) Center.

Integrating gender into monitoring and evaluation (M&E) is an important step towards understanding the effectiveness of these programs and health outcomes for women, girls, men and boys. This course is designed to help individuals strengthen their understanding of gender M&E as it applies to gender-focused programs and health programs that do not specifically address gender.

It introduces key concepts in gender M&E, including differences between sex-disaggregated and gender-sensitive indicators, and challenges in data collection and interpretation. Case studies and examples focus on two types of gender M&E: conducting M&E of gender-focused programs and integrating gender into the M&E of health programs.


This course has been developed for program managers of gender-focused programs, gender advisors, and individuals seeking to integrate gender into M&E efforts.

If you are new to M&E, we recommend that you take the M&E Fundamentals course for more information on basic M&E concepts and definitions.
