Gender Impact Assessments
As part of our gender advocacy work, Women’s Health Victoria produces topic-based Gender Impact Assessments. These analyse the extent to which existing or proposed policy and practice is based on gendered evidence, and responds appropriately to gender.
They highlight policies and practices that are gender blind, and make recommendations that promote gender equity and improved outcomes for women. The content emphasizes the social model of health, and has an Australian focus
To assist the development of GIAs by others, the Women’s Health Victoria Guide to developing a gender impact assessment is available for download.
