In Myanmar, a surge in conflict, growing internal displacement, and the impacts of Cyclone Mocha have placed people, particularly women, in dangerous environments. The rise in gender disparities in employment due to the ongoing conflict has only heightened the vulnerability of women to trafficking and gender-based violence. In addition, the decline of the health system has left many women without access to vital health services. This report highlights the devastating situation in Myanmar and underscores the pressing need for assistance in bolstering the country’s economic and health systems.
Our training materials can be used to introduce a broad range of audiences and backgrounds to important concepts related to gender and health. Each training course focuses on one of five themes that complement the CORE Gender 101 agenda: Gender Integration, HIV + Sexuality, Safe Motherhood, Gender-Based Violence, and Constructive Male Engagement. The courses are designed to meet the geographic and technical needs of cooperating agencies, USAID Missions, and specific projects. Materials range from basics such as using a shared gender vocabulary and programmatic guidance, to user guides on how to conduct a gender analysis, to exercises for gender trainings. The trainings are geared to be used by anyone and with any audience, even those learning about gender for the first time!
