Title Making Gender a Global Health Priority: A Report of the CSIS Global Health Policy Center
Author Janet Fleischman

This report proposes that a gender-focused approach to global health build on four cornerstones: 

  1. maternal child health and family planning
  2. infectious diseases that disproportionately affect women 
  3. gender-based violence 
  4. food security. 

These areas are clearly linked and underscore the importance of an integrated, comprehensive global health policy. To operationalize this approach, the report focuses on three key recommendations for the Obama administration:  

  • require a gender lens in program design and implementation, 
  • support capacity strengthening and resource mobilization, and 
  • coordinate among U.S. government agencies and promote U.S. global leadership.
