When dealing with the question of gender, it is clear that one is addressing systemic-level historic inequalities. To fully realize gender equality, a critical and core development outcome, the analysis of gender-related indicators has to be both deep and wide. This Toolkit aims to guide in the development of research questions to assist data collection while performing gender analysis at the project level. The Toolkit provides illustrative questions related to the five domains described in United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Automated Directive System (ADS) 205. These domains are: 1) Laws, regulations, and institutional practices; 2) Cultural norms and beliefs; 3) Gender roles, responsibilities, and time used; 4) Access to and control over assets and resources and 5) Patterns of power and decision-making. The Toolkit is designed for people and organizations at different levels of the health system. It can be used by caregivers at the facility level, evaluators at the national level, and policymakers.
