Gender Equity

Gender Equity quote feb 2022

Abt values gender equality and social inclusion as worthy goals in their own right, but they’re also the prism through which we develop approaches that help us achieve specific outcomes for clients, such as economic development, better health, or improved governance.

Promoting Gender Equity

Achieving gender equality is essential to achieving sustainable outcomes across sectors as diverse as agriculture, health systems strengthening, vector control and climate change. Abt grounds its approach to equity by first understanding and addressing historic and systemic disparities. Across our programming, Abt seeks to identify gender and other social determinants of health rigorously and consultatively within each local context. We integrate that knowledge into our project designs to ensure we address their impact on all members of society. The goal is to advance gender equity and social inclusion while promoting health and economic well-being for all.
