INFORMATION FOR APPLICANT

Brief Description of Assignment : In efforts to reduce gender and socioeconomic disparities in the health of populations, the provision of medical services alone is clearly short of being optimum. While socioeconomic development is assumed important in rectifying gender and socioeconomic inequities in health care access, the outcomes and empirical evidence of its impact is limited. GNSPU with technical and financial assistances from icddr, b, and UNFPA Bangladesh, have undertaken a study to identify gender responsive indicators in health services delivery. By undertaking this study, GNSPU seeks to ascertain the health outcomes of primary health care system against a set of selected gender sensitive indicators across various district hospitals and Upazila health complex. The findings are expected to portray a current scenario of gender responsiveness of the primary health care system and also create an evidence base to design future interventions and strategic policies to enhance gender mainstreaming of the primary health care. Objectives 1. To understand the scopes and utilisation of urban primary health care services at district and Upazila level. 2. To unveil gender disaggregated barriers to accessing the primary health care services. 3. To find out scopes to promote gender responsiveness of the primary health care services.
