The participants’ guide of the gender training manual for the health sector is a comprehensive guide to conduct a six day course. This guide consists of seven modules and different sessions. Each session contains module descriptions, session learning objectives, session durations, icebreakers, exercises,and attachments/handouts. The guide also includes two sections. The first is parts on creating an atmosphere conducive for learning and the second is on action planning. Each module has a course evaluation and a final evaluation.
The training manual builds on various tools and methodologies taken from organizations that mainstream gender into overall programs in the health sector. It takes into consideration sensitivities and challenges that training on gender poses. Both men and women who participate in gender training may not be aware of the values and
norms they have been socialized. The training provides an opportunity to assess these. The success of any gender training is whether individuals challenge the status quo as society believes it and as they practice it in their daily lives. Addressing gender is challenging and requires support at all levels. To ensure that the gender training is not abstract and complicated, it utilizes theoretical models for the practical understanding
and application based on the participants experience as practitioners and direct actors as one or the other gender.
