Training Manual on Gender Mainstreaming in Health

In 2002 MWIA developed a Training Manual for Gender Mainstreaming in Health, in response to the need of physicians to understand how adding a gender perspective to health and health care could favourably influence the health of women and men. The Training Manual was used around the world in all eight regions of MWIA to conduct workshops and train physicians in the concepts of gender mainstreaming in health.  This has allowed physicians to mainstream gender into their clinical practice, as well as influence those who develop policy and curriculum.

Training Manual for Adolescent Sexuality

MWIA’s Training Manual for Adolescent Sexuality, developed in 2004, is designed to help physicians address the concerns, questions and problems that adolescents experience in dealing with their sexuality. Above all, its intent is to help physicians play an important role in teaching adolescents about ‘healthy sexuality’.
