Calling for Submissions: What Works? Integrating gender into government health programmes across Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia

Dear friends

Greetings from UNU-IIGH/PHFI/UWC.

I am writing to share information regarding an on-going project ‘What works? Integrating gender into government health programmes across Africa, South Asia and Southeast Asia’ and ask for your support in identifying successful cases to include as part of this work.

Recognising the need for better contextualized evidence on how to successfully integrate gender into large scale health programs, United Nations University International Institute on Global Health (UNU-IIGH), Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI), and the School of Public Health at University of Western Cape (UWC) in South Africa, are partnering to identify and analyse 8-10 successful cases of gender integration into government health programmes in either Africa, South Asia or Southeast Asia to understand what worked, where, for whom, why, and how.

To begin identifying potential successful cases, we are inviting organisations and professionals to submit information on government health programmes in Africa, South Asia, or Southeast Asia that have successfully integrated gender. The specifications for the call are also attached and deadline for submission are 15th of May 2022.

Given that our community spans all the three regions, we would be grateful if you could submit information on any relevant health programmes that meet the eligibility criteria. Alternatively, you can send me information of relevant individuals to contact directly.

Please find here the link to the website which gives all the details of the project :What Works Webpage

The direct link for the call is:What Works_Call for Submissions and the email id for queries is

In addition, please can you share this email with your networks.

Thank you so much in advance for your time and input. We are excited about finding new ways of co-creating solutions and this would not be possible without your support.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions (

We look forward to keeping in touch as the project progresses.



On behalf of the PHFI team India

Hi Rajlakshmi: SWATI ( has been working with ASHA WORKERS  to integrate GBV in their work. We have had some very interesting and promising outcomes. Not sure if that qualifies as a case study. Please let me know

Dear Poonam

Thank you for your interest. Sorry for the delay. I am positive that your work will fit in as long as the Government had some role to play- design, implement, evaluate, fund. 

If you would like to have a chat, please email me at and I can share my number.

Looking forward
