Gender & Polio Introductory Training and Presentation
This training package on gender and polio has been adapted from a pilot training with the African Field Epidemiology Network (AFENET), a grantee of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The materials are intended for use with polio and eradication and surveillance project implementation teams that have an interest in applying a gender lens to their work. It is an introductory training for participants to begin to explore the interaction of gender with health outcomes and polio eradication and surveillance efforts; it is not intended to train staff on how to design gender-intentional programs design, nor is it intended to replace the need for local gender expertise in polio-related programming and interventions. To ensure a safe and effective training, skilled facilitators with strong gender and health expertise are required for the delivery of these materials.
