Gender equality is critical to achieving global public health goals. Data for Impact (D4I) integrates gender throughout the project to ensure sufficient high-quality data are available to assess the gender and health outcomes of programs and to guide decision making at all levels.
The solutions-oriented technical support of D4I applies a gender lens when determining information needs, articulating study questions, designing and implementing studies, developing data visualization applications, encouraging data use, and assessing and strengthening local capacity. D4I works with local partners to strengthen their capacity to do the same. A gender lens enables all parties to consider and allow for the needs, realities, and participation of women and men, boys and girls, and gender and sexual minorities.
