Call for Applications: Gender and Health Systems Strengthening online course
CapacityPlus, USAID’s flagship project on the global health workforce led
by IntraHealth International, is pleased to announce the release of the
Gender and Health Systems Strengthening course hosted on the USAID Global
Health eLearning Center.
Learners who take this course will learn about the gender issues that exist
within the major health systems components, key interventions that promote
gender equality and women’s empowerment, and how to address these gender
issues in health systems strengthening activities in order to improve
health systems’ outcomes.
Women and men have different opportunities and constraints, needs, power,
and access to the resources affecting their health. Promoting gender
equality in the six components of the health system, as described by the
World Health Organization and seen below, means assuring fairness and
justice in the distribution of benefits, power and resources between women
and men, girls and boys.
You can take the course for free by registering at
http://www.globalhealthlearning.org. Prior to taking this course, you should
complete the Gender and Sexual and Reproductive Health 101 course, which
will provide you with basic understanding of key gender concepts. The
Global Health eLearning Center will also provide you with free access to
more than 65 courses on a variety of global health topics.
