Evidence for Action: Approaches to Advance Gender Equity From Around the Globe
August 26, 2020
The goal of this funding opportunity is to translate and adapt knowledge from around the world to the United States on approaches that can improve health or the determinants of health by improving gender equity. In the United States, determinants of health relate to personal safety, economic opportunity, education access (post-secondary or beyond), supportive workplace and social environments, and protection from bias and discrimination for vulnerable groups. We are especially interested in understanding how to change systems, norms, and practices—such as patriarchy and heterosexism—that systematically disfavor women, girls, and other groups based on gender or sexual identity. Specifically, we seek to learn from initiatives underway outside the United States whose effectiveness is supported or suggested by empirical evidence and that have the potential to be adapted and implemented in the United States.
