New resource: Gender & Health Data and Statistics guide

New from MEASURE Evaluation—Gender and Health Data and Statistics: an annotated resource guide.

Methods used to compile the resources:

“Several different search strategies were used to locate tools, papers, trainings, and
other types of resources pertaining to gender and health data and statistics. Websites
of global partners, NGOs, and other organizations that have conducted gender-related
work and launched gender strategies were searched for gender publications and tools
from September 2010 to January 2011. These organizations included UNAIDS, UN
WOMEN (formerly UNIFEM) and UNFPA, PAHO, WHO, and the World Bank, Futures Group,
International Center for Research on Women (ICRW), Population Council, EngenderHealth,
and MEASURE Evaluation. Searches for gender publications and tools were also conducted
on other already existing compilations of resources. These included the IGWG’s website
and the newly launched, Knowledge for Health (K4Health) IGWG Gender & Health eToolkit.”

The document includes a list of existing resources and frameworks, as well as detailed information on how they are used and where related documents can be found. While it’s something of a laundry list of tools and resources, it would be a great starting spot for someone looking for a gender/health tool or data source.
