UNFPA APRO developed tools for country offices and partners to strengthen gender-based violence (GBV) and disability inclusion programming, including a tip-sheet on disability inclusion in GBV programming and a GBV and disability inclusion assessment tool. The lessons learned from the implementation of the tools informed this documentation on promising practices and innovative approaches to disability inclusion in GBV programming adopted by UNFPA country offices and their partners in the Asia-Pacific region.
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!
Our popular Gender Integration Continuum framework is an important tool to assess how programs do (or do not) address gender and move them toward more gender-transformative actions. An updated User’s Guide for facilitating training on use of the continuum is available, along with other materials.
