WHO; TDR Gender Toolkit

TDR, the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases, hosted at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland, has developed a toolkit entitled “TDR Gender Research Toolkit: Incorporating intersectional gender analysis into Research on infectious diseases of Poverty”. The objectives of this toolkit are to: 1) strengthen the research capacity of disease-affected countries in intersectional gender approaches; 2) understand and address barriers to effective and quality implementation of health interventions oriented to prevent and control infectious diseases; and 3) explore solutions for equal access to quality health care. It is also relevant to other health research areas and interventions and across scientific disciplines. Hence, it is necessary to pilot this toolkit in order to assess the feasibility of its implementation in the real world and in different settings.
