Transforming Gender Norms, Roles, and Powers for Better Health: Evidence from a Systematic Review of Gender-Integrated Health Programs in Low-and Middle-Income CountriesTransforming Gender Norms, Roles, and Powers for Better Health: Evidence from a Systematic Review of Gender-Integrated Health Programs in Low-and Middle-Income Countries

The Gender, Policy and Measurement program, funded by the Asia bureau of the U.S. Agency for International Development, undertook a comprehensive, systematic review of the impact of gender-integrated programs on health outcomes. The findings are primarily intended to inform the work of government officials, donors, nongovernmental organizations, and other key stakeholders involved in health programming in India, as well as other low- and middle-income countries around the world.

This review presents evidence showing how gender-integrated programming influences health outcomes in low- and middle-income countries: in particular, reproductive, maternal, neonatal, child, and adolescent health; HIV prevention and AIDS response; gender-based violence; tuberculosis; and universal health coverage.

A gender-integrated programs resource document is also available, as well as a series of nine subject briefing papers related to the report.
