Gender and Health 50/50 Nepal – launching 10 August
Global Health 50/50 (GH5050) and The Center for Research on Environment Health and Population Activities (CREHPA) are pleased to announce the launch of the first national report using the GH5050 method to review gender equality and health in Nepal. The inaugural report, Gender and Health 50/50 Nepal: Catalyzing change for gender equality and health equity, is launching on 10 August 2022 at an in-person event in Kathmandu, Nepal. The report publishes evidence and key insights on the state of gender equality in Nepal’s health sector and urges stakeholders and advocates to address inequities in workplaces policies and health programming.
GH5050’s partnership with CREHPA is its first country-level initiative to generate evidence, policy recommendations and action to drive gender equality and women’s empowerment in the health sector. The formation of the partnership builds on long-standing collaboration between CREHPA and the co-Directors of GH5050. The report responds to calls from national policy-makers for an accountability framework similar to the global GH5050 framework to ensure that policies and commitments are translated into action.
Since 2021, a team of researchers, advocates and communications specialists have worked to adapt the global GH5050 model to the country level, and have reviewed key workplace-related and programmatic policies of government bodies, bilateral and multilateral organisations, UN agencies, philanthropic and funders, non-government organisations, regional organisations, and private as well as public-private partnership organisations active in Nepal – 77 organisations in total.
From 10 August the report will be available to download from our website or you can subscribe to our mailing list to receive the report in your inbox.
The Center for Research on Environment Health and Population Activities (CREHPA) is a not-for-profit research organisation based at Lalitpur, Nepal. The organisation’s strength lies in its diversity of research work and evidence-based advocacy initiatives to influence policy and programs. CREHPA works across sectors including population, public health, sexual and reproductive health of adolescents, young people and adults; women’s health and rights, child rights, abortion, gender equality issues including gender-based violence, sexual exploitation and human trafficking, labor migration, non-communicable diseases and environment/climate change.
