Gender-Based Analysis Plus (GBA+) Awareness Week
Today marks the beginning of Gender-based Analysis Plus (GBA+) Awareness Week (November 19-23, 2018) The theme is GBA+ Benefits Everyone, highlighting that when we apply a GBA+ approach, we ensure that benefits are equally enjoyed by everyone — regardless of sex, gender, age, race, rurality, language, ability or any other identity factor.
What is GBA+?
GBA+ is an analytical tool used to assess how diverse groups of women, men and gender-diverse people may experience policies, programs and initiatives. The + in GBA+ acknowledges that GBA goes beyond biological (sex) and socio-cultural (gender) differences and addresses the multiple identity factors we all have, such as race, ethnicity, religion, age and disability.
