Cambodia : WI-HER developed and facilitated trainings on gender, harassment in the workforce and counter-human trafficking for University Research Co. LLC (URC), field staff in Uganda, Tanzania, Cambodia, and Myanmar to ensure that all URC field office staff are aware of and comprehend URC policies. A holistic, integrated approach was used to identify and respond to the differing needs of men and women. Trainings aimed to promote positive, healthy practices for greater gender equity and increased productivity and quality of work and used updated, engaging techniques, including interactive workshops that engaged participants through various media and participatory exercises. Under the USAID ASSIST Project, WI-HER supports the Cambodia team in knowledge management.
Georgia : WI-HER worked with ASSIST project staff to integrate gender into the screening and modification of CVD risk factors. WI-HER supported the ASSIST team in Georgia by providing in-country training sessions to orient the team to identify and respond to gender-related gaps in NCD care. After the training, ASSIST staff in Georgia initiated gender-sensitive interventions to close gender-related gaps in the CVD screening processes and subsequently analyzed sex-disaggregated results.
India : WI-HER supports the USAID ASSIST Project in India to integrate gender in its work on Health Systems Strengthening (HSS) in reproductive, maternal, newborn, and child health (RMNCH). WI-HER drafted six geographic gender briefs for the Project, and ASSIST staff worked with quality improvement (QI) teams to respond to gender-related challenges leading to inadequate postpartum detection of early signs of complications by engaging and educating family members about warning signs, as well as educating male family members on the importance of antenatal care (ANC) and post-partum family planning (PPFP). ASSIST India also engaged male family members when conducting home visits and conducted survey research to study the effect that family, the community, and gender norms have on Indian community health workers.
