Gender Responsive Budgeting and Women’s Reproductive Rights: A Resource Pack

No. of pages: 92

Publication Date: 2006

Author: UNFPA, UNIFEM

ISBN: 1 93 28 27 61 7

This resource pack provides relevant knowledge to facilitate mainstreaming gender-responsive approaches into reproductive health programmes, and the inclusion of specific aspects of gender inequality and disadvantage into national policy frameworks. It focuses primarily on health, particularly reproductive health; on HIV/AIDS; and on violence against women as it relates to health services. The publication was produced under a UNFPA/UNIFEM strategic partnership aimed at developing a coordinated approach for effective technical assistance to gender-responsive budgeting (GRB).

The resource pack takes the form of brief "sheets," each focusing on a GRB-related topic. Each sheet includes descriptions of a range of experiences using GRB in different countries, as well as references to further reading.

The materials included in the resource pack are intended for use in developing countries and look at how GRB can be used to direct attention to those who are most in need and those who are disadvantaged by their gender, economic status, location and other characteristics.
