Describes the information needed and the steps to take to present a profile of specific-or several-health -related issues, using a gender-based analysis. Follows the methods described in the 'Guidelines for Gender based Analysis of Health data for Decision Making'. Statistical information forms the basis for a gender analysis, which sensitizes planners and policy makers to health inequalities that are avoidable and unfair, and contributes to developing better programs and policies.
