Gender and health: curriculum outlines
Discrimination is rooted deeply in the cultural fabric of society and shapes the construction of the beliefs and attitudes that determine each society's gender divisions. The different ways in which women and men experience the world and the impact they have on each other are fundamental to health and healt-care. It is necessary that health workers should be equipped with the training to carry out a gender-based analysis of health issues and to identify and eliminate the stereotypical attitudes, behaviour and approaches that lead to discrimination. As a contribution to the important goal of achieving equality for women in the field of health, the Commonwealth Secretariat has initiated a programme for the training of health workers in the gender-based analysis, planning and implementation of health interventions. These curriculum outlines define a comprehensive and fully gendered approach to major health areas. They are designed to be adopted as the basis for training health workers, both through distance education and using face-to-face methodologies.
