Comparative evaluation of indicators for gender equity and health (Report)
Published: December 2003This paper provides the summary of three interrelated reports:
- An annotated bibliography on indicators for gender equity, gender equality and health (including: conceptual frameworks, development of indicators and indices, and monitoring strategies);
- A Health Information Framework (rather than a conceptual model about determinants of health) that defines the parameters within which the indicators could be examined, along with issues associated with indicator development and use; and
- An audit of indicators used by key international organizations concerned with gender and health, or proposed by international organizations for development and use.
