    The United Nations University International Institute for Global Health (UNU-IIGH) is leading a practice-based study, drawing on realist methods, to analyse what strategies have worked, where and why in gender mainstreaming efforts within UN agencies working in global health. Overall, the study aims to answer the question: What can we learn from the practice of mainstreaming gender, both institutionally and programmatically, among UN agencies with a health mandate (UNAIDS, UNDP, UNFPA, UNICEF and WHO)?

    This workshop series is organised by UNU-IIGH as part of the study approach and methodological commitment to the co-production of knowledge. The workshops will engage collaborators from each agency to provide additional insights and apply their collective experience to deepen ongoing analysis of successful outcomes in gender mainstreaming, and potential underlying factors facilitating many of the successes within each agency’s context.

    Workshop objectives

    • To provide preliminary evidence on successful examples of what has worked and why in gender mainstreaming, both at the institutional and at the programmatic level.
    • To clarify, validate and refine emerging contextual factors and mechanisms facilitating successful outcomes in selected cases.
    • To ensure engagement and ownership from within the agencies of the study findings and their relevance and applicability to their programming and practice
