The focus of this report is describing the process of Phase II of the "Invisible Women" project. Section I is a narrative and story of Phase II as it unfolded over several years. Section II is an analysis using frameworks of policy analysis. Using the frameworks illuminates why early conceptions of the Phase II project were such a challenge, particularly given the complexity of health policy and planning in decentralized policy networks.
