Gender and Health Advocacy Packs

The purpose behind GenSalud Advocacy Packs is to present a current issue in Gender and Health in a concise and user-friendly way. Each kit contains a fact sheet (or series of fact sheets), a brief issue paper and a power point presentation. They can be used as part of a conference presentation, as a tool to educate policy-makers or as the basis for a workshop or class session on Gender and Health issues. Upcoming kits include: Gender and Indigenous Women's Health in the Americas, and Male Involvement in Sexual and Reproductive Health.

You may download the whole kit free of charge. We ask that you kindly let us know how you are using the kit, so that we can evaluate its efficacy. Please contact us at with your comments and suggestions
