The year 2020 will mark several important milestones for gender equality and sustainable development, including the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, one of the most comprehensive blueprints for women’s rights worldwide.

Gender inequality and gender norms impede progress on the global goal to achieve health for all. Today, not a single country can claim to have achieved gender equality. Multiple obstacles remain unchanged in law and in culture. As a result, women remain undervalued, they continue to work more, earn less, have fewer choices, and experience multiple forms of violence at home and in public spaces.

A gender transformative approach aspires to change this reality. It tackles the root causes of gender inequality and reshapes unequal power relations.It actively examines, questions, and changes rigid gender norms and imbalances of power. It addresses the root causes of gender inequality and promotes the value of women and girls. It goes beyond improving the condition of women and girls – it seeks to improve their social position.

This year’s MMS annual SRHR conference will seek answers on how we can realise gender equality and whether gender transformative approaches are really the answer it.

Target audience: national and international Public Health professionals, project leaders, researchers and all those who are interested.
