Full Document (pdf 1,014.5 kb)
USAID/Egypt is in the process of preparing a bridge strategy that will transition it from the end of its current strategy to its next phase, which is under discussion with the Government of Egypt. As part of this transition, the Office of Health and Population requested a gender assessment to inform their new programs. This gender assessment was prepared to examine how gender had been integrated into three of the Mission's programs: Health Systems 20/20 (Abt Associates), Takamol (Pathfinder International), and Communication for Healthy Living (Johns Hopkins University/Center for Communications Programs) and suggest ways to improve gender integration in the future. The gender assessment team also conducted two half-day gender trainings for the health and population team.
This report is the result of a gender assessment conducted for USAID/Egypt in preparation of their bridge strategy in health, which will run from 2011 to 2015. The Gender Assessment was conducted by a two-person team composed of Deborah Caro, a gender and reproductive health specialist based in the U.S., and Soumaya Ibrahim-Hubner, a gender and organizational development specialist based in Egypt. The report also provides information on key issues on gender and health in Egypt as they relate to the Mission's program. It synthesizes information from personal interviews and meetings conducted during two weeks in country, an extensive review of project documents, and data sources and literature on health and gender relations in Egypt.
