Gender Based Analysis for Vector Borne Diseases for Climate Change Research
Gender Based Analysis (GBA) Project
The GBA project was aimed at developing a Gender-Based Analysis for Vector Borne Diseases and Climate Change training course using innovative classroom approaches. This course sought to strengthen capacity for gender-based analysis in vector-borne disease and climate change research towards improved design and implementation of gender sensitive health policies, projects and research. To achieve this, gender and IT experts from various departments of the University of Ghana developed, piloted and finalized all five modules for this short course. The content of the course was designed hierarchically to offer knowledge and skills, as well as their application for research, policy and programming. In this regard the course adopted online technology to deliver course materials through the SAKAI Learning Management System. It is believed that such competencies will be useful for addressing societal needs of LMICs and ultimately improve health and wellbeing, climate conditions and reduce hunger among vulnerable populations.
