Our Projects

Some of our research projects

The Centre for Gender Studies and Advocacy (CEGENSA) and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) have set up a Pan-African Gender Integration Platform (PA-GIP) for gender-responsive malaria advocacy and policy. This platform (PA-GIP) will serve as an Africa-led resource for gender integration (GI) advisory services and knowledge generation. The PA-GIP will provide a Pan-African perspective which will help uncover new ways to deal with complex gender-related topics and to identify, contextualize and integrate gender-transformative approaches into malaria advocacy and policy frameworks to advance both malaria and gender equality outcomes.
