In this publication we will review concepts, approaches, and tools that will help you bring about a change of perspective in designing and implementing policies and programs in health, specifically in relation to gender. The chapter explores the myths and realities regarding gender, the concept of gender mainstreaming and how to move towards this goal, discusses how to conduct a gender analysis and provides links to relevant tools, discusses gender integration into programming and the gender integration continuum, and offers insights into how to integrate gender considerations into the health system using the lens of the WHO health systems building blocks.
