Gender equity, or the fair treatment and allocation of resources to all people regardless of gender and according to their respective needs, is an important component of a Culture of Health. Achieving gender equity is a critical step towards achieving health equity and ensuring everyone has a fair and just opportunity to live their healthiest life possible. Research funded through our special Call for Proposals: Approaches to Advance Gender Equity From Around the Globe focuses on assessing the potential to adapt interventions from around the world to the United States that have been shown to improve gender equity and health. Adapting an evidence-based intervention to a new setting is a process that takes place over many stages. E4A grants funded in this area represent various stages of this process, and each are guided by a framework or model to help ensure a rigorous and systematic approach.
