Working in close collaboration with other project staff, Iris Group draws on best practices in gender integration in the USAID context to implement the USAID Gender Equality and Female Empowerment (GEFE) policy – and improve both health and gender outcomes.  Integration efforts are guided by a project-wide gender strategy and country-level gender assessments, and include addressing supporting training of private sector providers on gender-based violence, gender mainstreaming in social marketing partner organizations, and increasing our knowledge about social franchising's influence on women's empowerment.
