The Wits School of Public Health will launch a capacity strengthening initiative on Gender-Based Analysis (GBA) in Vector-Borne Diseases and Climate Change.

The initiative addresses the design and implementation of gender-sensitive health policies, projects and research. It teaches how gender norms, roles and relations influence the susceptibility of men, women and non-binary individuals to different health conditions. A component of the content is how gender-related aspects influence people’s responses and coping mechanisms to climate change and vector-borne diseases. This a collaboration with the School of Public Health at the University of Ghana and  the World Health Organization’s TDR, the Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases.
