Guidelines for the analysis of Gender and Health
(Training manual) Health policy makers and practitioners usually have little training in recognising and addressing gender issues. Although there is a range of materials available which offer general assistance in considering gender issues in development practice, few refer specifically to the issues which are most relevant to health. The Gender and Health Group at the Liverpool School for Tropical Medicine has developed these “Guidelines for Gender Analysis in Health” to offer such specific assistance to health professionals. The overall aim of the guidelines is to enhance the ability to understand and respond to gender issues amongst those involved in the planning, implementation, and evaluation of health care provision and health research.

Training of Trainers: Low-Tech Strategies for Promoting Sexual and Reproductive Health
This 12-day course responds to the challenges faced by "Master Trainers" as they prepare educators for SRH promotion in resource-constrained communities. Human sexuality, behaviour change and learner-centred education are central themes in the course. Participants are taken through a framework for deconstructing western logic and repackaging information to enable local access. Participants explore culture-based methodologies for communicating cultural beliefs and are supported in applying those methodologies to SRH promotion. The course culminates in participants’ developing and demonstrating low-tech teaching aids from readily available materials.
