Gender and health eToolkit  
http://www.k4health.org/toolkits/igwg-gender

Provides practical, "how-to" methodologies and tools on gender that are designed to move health practitioners and managers from awareness and commitment to direct application and practice in policy and program design, implementation, research, capacity building and monitoring and evaluation. This is a companion site to the IGWG website ( http://www.igwg.org/ ) which has become a premier site for gender and reproductive health information, publications, and networking. The eToolkit broadens the set of resources available to USAID staff, contractors, gender experts, and other public health specialists and service providers. It provides access to hundreds of tools, to other gender toolkits and databases, and to prominent gender and health websites throughout the world. The eToolkit will be updated continuously to include new, relevant tools as they become available. Offline copies of the toolkit on CD or flash drive are available upon request.

This review assesses the effectiveness of programme interventions seeking to engage men and boys in achieving gender equality and equity in health. Research with men and boys has shown how inequitable gender norms - social expectations of what men and boys should and should not do - influence how men interact with their partners, families and children on a wide range of issues. These include preventing the transmission of HIV and sexually transmitted infections, contraceptive use, physical violence, household tasks, parenting and their health-seeking behaviour.
