The Importance of Gender in Malaria Data Abstract:

The demand for specific data and indicators incorporating a gender perspective has moved beyond advocates of the rights of women and key populations to include decision-makers at every level and in every area of social and economic development. And while there is greater general awareness of the need for a gender perspective in health policy and programming, not all health areas have considered gender implications equally. Addressing gender when monitoring and evaluating malaria projects helps ensure equity in access and benefits for men and women. This brief explores the importance of gender in monitoring and evaluation activities and suggests indicators to reveal and explain gender gaps in malaria outcomes.
