Addressing gender when monitoring and evaluating emerging infectious disease (ID) interventions and programs helps to ensure equity in access and benefits for all. This brief explores the importance of gender in monitoring and evaluation (M&E) activities and suggests indicators to reveal and explain gender gaps in emerging ID outcomes. It refers to the WHO framework on gender variables that helps assess whether policies, programs, or research initiatives account for differences between genders in the following aspects: roles and responsibilities, access to resources, decision-making power, social and cultural norms, and education, among others.
