Gender Development strategies

Gender development strategies have been shown to have a major positive effect on the health of children. These gender programmes are more successful when combined with the establishment of strong socio-political environments. Reducing gender inequality involves encouraging the participation of women in the labor market, supporting female ownership, promoting female education, involving women in decision-making, and improving women’s access to health care and necessary resources.
