FHI monograph examines gender issues in the PHN sector
Family Health International has published a 44-page booklet, "Through a
Gender Lens: Resources for Population, Health and Nutrition Projects,"
plus a bibliography, that reviews existing models and methodologies for
incorporating gender perspectives into reproductive health programs.
Its purpose is to make preliminary recommendations and to initiate
discussion among those working in the Population, Health and Nutrition
(PHN) sector about their specific gender needs and how best to adapt
current models and methodologies to meet them. The paper illustrates
the key ideas necessary for understanding how gender might affect PHN
projects and leads the reader to key documents that may be most useful
and most relevant to PHN work. "Through a Gender Lens" is available on
FHI's website at <http://www.fhi.org/wsp/wspubs/thrugen.html>. Limited
copies also are available to developing country health organizations.
