Integrating Gender Issues into HIV/AIDS Programs: An Operational Guide

Source
The World Bank Interagency Coalition on AIDS and Development (ICAD)

This guide is designed by and for World Bank staff, but is useful for program managers and designers anywhere. It offers practical examples of how to strengthen HIV/AIDS programs by integrating a gender perspective. It provides specific guidance to national HIV/AIDS program management teams, public-sector ministries, private sector entities, and non-governmental and community-based organizations (NGOs/CBOs) implementing World Bank-financed HIV/AIDS programs and projects, as well as the World Bank’s operational staff who design these programs and projects. It provides concrete examples of the integration of gender concerns into all stages of project preparation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation (M&E). The immediate objective is to provide the tools needed to identify and analyze gender-specific issues and concerns in HIV/AIDS programs and make appropriate provisions in HIV/AIDS operations to address these concerns. The ultimate goal of this Operational Guide is to enhance the effectiveness of HIV/AIDS interventions by ensuring that the gender inequalities that underlie the epidemic are addressed.
