Making Gender Count Abstract:

This fact sheet provides a summary of MEASURE Evaluation's gender portfolio, as well as a summary of our Priorities for Local AIDS Control Efforts (PLACE) method as PLACE relates to youth.

MEASURE Evaluation is a leader in the field of gender-sensitive monitoring and evaluation (M&E). MEASURE Evaluation increases the capacity of individuals and organizations to collect, analyze, and use gender-related health information for better program and policy decision making at local, national, and global levels. The gender portfolio staff has expertise in a wide range of state-of-the-art, gender-sensitive M&E and health information systems (HIS), approaches, and tools, including analysis of sex-disaggregated and gender-sensitive indicators to identify potential gender-related patterns in program use and effects; HIS specification, design, and development for data on gender-based violence (GBV); capacity building to address gender in HIV and GBV program M&E; and development and selection of gender-sensitive indicators (i.e., those that try to directly measure gender).

Since the inception of PLACE, which identifies and maps populations who are most at risk in terms of HIV infections, the method has included a focus on female youth. The method provides a risk profile of female youth who attend venues identified as places where people meet new sexual partners. Although all PLACE studies can provide data on youth, several PLACE studies have specifically focused on youth or oversampled youth.
