AIDS 2014 Workshop: M&E of Gender-based violence, HIV, and women’s economic empowerment
The M&E of Gender-based violence, HIV, and women’s economic empowerment workshop will take place July 24 at the International AIDS Conference. MEASURE Evaluation's Jessica Fehringer and Carolina Mejia will facilitate the workshop. This workshop will explore gender-sensitive monitoring and evaluation (M&E) that allows programmes to illuminate important, but often overlooked gender differences and unintended consequences.
Participants will explore the intersection of M&E and gender, using case studies on HIV, gender-based violence (GBV) and women’s economic empowerment (WEE) in small groups to work through selecting appropriate indicators and measures. Participants will work to define gender and related terms; discuss why gender is important to health outcomes and programming; identify measures of gender and health, including HIV, GBV and WEE; articulate criteria for indicator selection and information sources for HIV, GBV and WEE indicators; and apply gender-sensitive indicators to programmes to integrate gender into M&E. Participants will be encouraged to discuss their achievements and challenges related to conducting gender-sensitive M&E providing an opportunity to learn from colleagues' experiences and successes.
