Checklist for assessing the gender responsiveness of sexual and reproductive health policies




The primary purpose of this checklist is to assist in the implementation of reproductive health (RH) policies that integrate approaches to achieving gender equity/equality. RH programmes that integrate gender equity/equality objectives maximize access and quality, support individual decision-making and reproductive choice, increase sustainability, and put into practice international commitments and WHO recommendations. This checklist should help those assessing how gender is integrated into RH policies to structure their assessment and identify gaps and strengths.
