Lutte contre la violence basée sur le genre dans les programmes de santé de l'USAID: un guide pour les responsables de programmes du secteur de la santé
Full Document (pdf 967.7 kb)
In 2004, USAID commissioned an in-depth literature review (Guedes, 2004) that summarizes promising interventions from the field. The present guide is meant to complement the literature review and is intended to help USAID program officers integrate gender-based violence (GBV) initiatives into their health sector portfolio during project design, implementation, and evaluation. The guide focuses on what the health sector can do, keeping in mind that preventing and responding to gender-based violence requires a multisectoral approach. For each type of health program—from community mobilization to health policy—the guide explores reasons why these programs should address gender-based violence and how to support GBV initiatives based on what is known about promising approaches from literature reviews, (e.g. Heise et al., 1999; Guedes, 2004; Bott et al., 2005), the opinions of leading experts, and feedback from USAID and cooperating agency staff.
