Gender perspectives: A collection of case studies for training purposes

This gender training pack is made up of 20 case studies collected for training purposes. The case studies are based on real situations and demonstrate the relevance and benefit of considering gender issues in Red Cross and Red Crescent core activities as defined in Strategy 2010 of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (International Federation). The case studies cover the areas of disaster relief, disaster preparedness, health, and the promotion of Red Cross/Red Crescent principles and values. The final group of case studies focuses on how to mainstream gender within an organization. Since the case studies are based specifically on Red Cross/Red Crescent work situations and practices, users from National Societies, Federation Delegations and Secretari at can easily relate the materials to their own work situations.

The materials on gender concepts, in particular those regarding the relevance of promoting gender issues in the work of the International Federation intend to explore the organization’s specific approaches to gender issues and to help in translating the statements of the Gender Policy of the International Federation into daily practices of the National Societies, Federation Secretariat and Delegations. Thus, the training pack also provides valuable practical guidelines for implementing the International Federation’s Gender Policy which was adopted in 1999.
