This guide, made possible through the efforts of the Ministry of Health (Mexico), FUNDAR, Equidad de Género and UNIFEM, is meant to provide direction when incorporating gender perspectives in the design and formulation of health sector public policy. Based on knowledge gained from gender budgeting experiences in the Mexican health sector, this tool is made up of five chapters that illustrate various concepts such as the formulation of indicators and strategies for designing gender sensitive policies, recommendations for HIV/AIDS prevention programmes using a gendered approach, as well as the analysis of inequality gaps, among others.
