Various African organisations focus on advancing gender equality in health through designing policies, implementing programmes, teaching, research and advocacy. However, stakeholders across different constituencies, geographies and language groups, are not well connected. There also appears to be limited documentation on what works best (for Africa) in integrating gender perspectives into government health programmes as well as the transformative element of gender and health programming. Thus, the main objectives of the CoP are;
Community members will include programme implementers, policymakers, advocacy groups, international and local organisations, academicians, researchers and students. The community will engage in collaborative learning and action across various online spaces to advance the above agenda across the continent.
The benefit of this CoP is that it will provide a platform for information sharing, dialogue, and relationship building to advance collective learning and action on gender and health across the African continent.
