This guide is meant to offer practical guidance for gender mainstreaming in technical assistance (TA) provision. It is intended as a set of guidelines for the integration of gender equality considerations which, if incorporated in TA, will improve its gender responsiveness. This tool provides a necessary starting point to the complex process of mainstreaming gender in TA in multi-sectoral nutrition initiatives. This guide was informed by a review of the literature on nutrition and gender, including the World Health Organization (WHO) gender assessment framework, and reviewed by gender specialists.
