(BQ) This important new book brings together gender studies and sexuality studies to provide original and critical insights into processes of identity formation in a wide range of sport-related contexts. The authors draw on contemporary debates concerning gender and identity from a range of disciplines including sociology, social and cultural geography, media studies and management studies, to address key issues in masculinity, femininity and sexuality
given high levels of illiteracy and isolation, the level
of knowledge about health risks related to pregnancy
and childbirth are low and hardly informed by modern
medical practices. there is poor demand for, and
mistrust of, preventive services such as vaccination and
birth spacing. Poverty, illiteracy and the low value placed
on women’s health, lack of female decision-making
power over their own health, and social and cultural
norms associated with reproduction adversely affect
decisions to seek health care and positive outcomes for
mother and child.
Consequently, the first section of this paper will focus on the concept of
conflict and conflict cycles. After presenting a working definition of
conflict, a theoretical model of the conflict lifecycle will be provided.
This section also presents an extended model of the conflict lifecycle
which includes both the conflict intensity level and measures to prevent,
limit and resolve the conflict.
Future options for international governance of cloning
could include further work by UNESCO IBC on the issue
of reproductive and research cloning, in the context
of resolution A/RES/59/280 and also in the context of
the Universal Declaration on Bioethics and Human
Rights, which was adopted by the General Conference
of UNESCO on the 19th of October 2005. The UN GA
Sixth committee takes up the issue of customary
international law on cloning.

Uganda has relevant health policies and regulations in place, many developed through a participatory
multi-stakeholder process, including the recent HSSIP. Innovative policies that are currently under
development include the Public-Private Partnership in Health Policy. The health sector has many actors
including nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), civil society organizations, HDPs, and multiple
government agencies beyond the MoH. A recently signed country “Compact” is a new mechanism for
coordination in the health sector.
Uganda has significantly improved access to maternal and child health care as well as the country‟s
response to HIV/AIDS. Further, the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria (Global Fund),
USAID, and other donor programming has led to increased availability of HIV prevention, outreach, and
treatment services. Most Ugandans now live within five kilometers of a health center.
The Board has embarked on an effort to comprehensively update its regulations, something that has
not been done in many years. Some of the areas of the Board may review include updating
licensing provisions, addressing the issue of licensing and credentialing in times of national
emergency and considering a category of administrative medicine.
Another major goal of the agency is the full revitalization of the Patient Care Assessment Division.
as mentioned, sexual and reproductive health is a
unique sub-sector, due to its close association with
important and sensitive socio-cultural factors and
gender roles which define and prescribe appropriate
opportunities and avenues of action. the field is
uniquely sensitive and therefore must involve explicit
exploration across all areas of activity of some critical
cross cutting issues – among them gender, adolescent
health, sexually transmitted infections and HIV/AIDs.
Health care workers have the opportunity and the obligation to identify, treat, and
educate women who are being abused. Health care institutions can make significant
contributions to addressing violence against women by supporting clinicians and clients.
Developing and institutionalizing national health-sector policies, protocols, and norms
about violence call attention to the problem of gender-based violence, and help ensure
quality care for survivors of abuse.
This Outlook issue focuses on the reproductive health consequences of violence
Recent DCF analysis highlighted the importance of improved national aid information management systems to better
track effective development cooperation targets, including on gender equality and the empowerment of women, and to
make a wide range of timely and forward-looking information (on disbursements, forecasts, progress on results, and
gender issues) widely available to all stakeholders for accountability purposes.
A gender audit is essentially a “social audit”, and belongs to the category of “quality audits”,
which distinguishes it from traditional “ﬁ nancial audits”. It considers whether internal practices
and related support systems for gender mainstreaming are effective and reinforce each other and
whether they are being followed. It establishes a baseline; identiﬁ es critical gaps and challenges;
and recommends ways of addressing them, suggesting possible improvements and innovations.
It also documents good practices towards the achievement of gender equality.
Building on concrete examples of how mutual accountability enablers and structures, such as partnership policies and
sectoral or thematic working groups, can effectively promote gender-related development results, this dialogue will
address what targets mutual accountability frameworks should have in place to assess commitments on gender equality
and measure related development results, such as, for example, the number of girls with access to schooling.
How can this “virtual” gender gap be closed? If the barriers to gender equality in social media use are mainly personal, then any
interventions to address this gender gap should be focused on “fixing the women” by introducing more training for women
or increasing their education, for instance. However, the regional survey results clearly show that barriers are predominantly
environmental, and require efforts in addressing discriminatory attitudes and cultural constraints on women.
the strategies profiled cover and demonstrate a broad spectrum of the overlap between sexual
and reproductive health and rights and Hiv. the case studies in chapters 1 and 4 address how
gender-based violence, harmful gender norms and taboo issues affect women as causes and
consequences of Hiv. the importance of prioritizing women on the margins and engaging young
people through comprehensive sexuality education is also investigated in chapters 3 and 7.
Whilst reproductive health targets and rights have been agreed in international negotiations and
universal access to reproductive health services incorporated into the MDG5, many countries do
not recognise sexual health as being distinct from reproductive health and the need for sexual
health services and information as going beyond those concerning reproduction and HIV.
School-related gender-based violence
remains an obstacle to girls’ education.
Efforts to address school safety are needed
at all levels, including teacher training,
community intervention and ministerial
policy and practice. Ministries of Education
can send a clear message that gender-
based school violence will not be tolerated
by firmly and quickly prosecuting perpetra-
tors. Teacher training should include strong
messages about professional and ethical
Ten years ago, as we put together the first edition of
Men’s Health, we asked an important question:
‘Why do men die on average five years younger than
women?’ A decade later, although we now have at
least a partial answer, namely that men look after
themselves less well than women, the so-called gender
gap still persists. The key issue then for
readers of the third edition of this book is what
can be done to narrow this gap, thereby allowing
men to live longer and healthier lives. This is
precisely the problem that we have asked each
of our authors to address.
Every woman of childbearing age in the sample was asked about her maternity
history. In particular, the questions addressed the outcome and the completion
time of each pregnancy, the gender of live births, the number of months of pure
breastfeeding for each child and the health condition of each live birth at the
time of the survey. Unfortunately, women were not asked about the health
condition of each child at birth. In the present paper, we restrict our analysis to
the youngest child born to each woman of childbearing age.
There are three
main reasons for doing this.
By now, it is widely recognized that gender inequality is both a serious brake on development and a denial of the rights of
women and girls. The United Nations System Task Team Report on a Post 2015 Development Agenda therefore
recommended that a future global development agenda should not only seek to address and monitor the elimination of
specific gender gaps. It should also transform the structural factors that underpin the widespread persistence of gender
based violence, discrimination and unequal development progress between women and men and girls and boys.
