This is a report of an expert group meeting on "Women and Health - Mainstreaming the Gender Perspective into the Health Sector" held from September 28 to October 2, 1999 in Tunis, Tunisia. The expert group developed a framework for a gender sensitive health policy which is a useful tool for mainstreaming. The framework can also assist in collecting information disaggregated by sex, setting targets, involving a variety of actors or stakeholders, defining their roles and responsibilities, suggesting how to allocate resources and providing guidelines for monitoring. Since efforts have increased in recent years to consider health in the framework of human rights, the expert group meeting emphasized placing respect for women's human rights at the centre of such a framework. When health is considered a human right, and not merely a social good, rights and responsibilities need to be defined accordingly. A neglect of women's health issues, in particular certain aspects of sexual and reproductive health, in the legislative and regulatory frameworks of countries, have been recognized as part of a systematic discrimination against women. The framework should ensure that steps are taken to include women's full enjoyment of the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health as stated in Article 12 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (1966), and to implement article 12 of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women which refers specifically to women's access to health care and family planning.
