Gender-responsive Health Infrastructure- A Guide, developed by Oxford Policy Management (OPM) is a document that aims to provide fundamental guidelines for public health facilities in India on creating gender-responsive infrastructure that benefits both service providers and clients. In this document, OPM has attempted to develop a comprehensive checklist that can be used to ensure health facilities are gender intentional, drawing on both OPM’s field experiences in Bihar and a review of existing national and international guidelines on infrastructure and quality of care for health facilities in low- and middle-income countries.

Project Details: OPM developed this document as a part of the technical support extended to the Bihar TSU through its project ‘Adaptive Learning For Gender Responsive Health Systems’. This project is supported by a Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) grant. The key purpose of this project is to provide robust learning exchange opportunities and need-based technical support to the foundation and its Technical Support Unit (TSU) partners in their gender-intentional programming efforts in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, India.
