Julia Holtemeyer

Improvement Specialist for Gender and Knowledge Management, USAID ASSIST Project/WI-HER, LLC

​The USAID ASSIST Project and WI-HER are working together in this year’s 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence Campaign by participating in a Tweet Chat Relay on Thursday, December 10th. Focusing on “Promising Approaches to Respond to Gender-Based Violence,” WI-HER staff will tweet from 10-11am about gender-based violence as an unintended negative consequence of economic strengthening programs. Specifically, we will focus on a project in Uganda aimed at increasing income for women to improve outcomes among orphans and vulnerable children that saw increased violence against those women.

GBV Tweet Banner, December 2015

The 16 Days Campaign is dedicated to ending gender-based violence at individual, community, national, and global levels. What started as an effort of 23 individuals in 1991 has grown into a UN recognized campaign of more than 5,000 organizations in approximately 187 countries. For all 25 years of the campaign, the Center for Women’s Global Leadership (CWGL) at Rutgers University has been the coordinator and served as a hub for information and networking. The campaign is not an individual effort of CWGL, rather it “takes shape from local, national, regional and international initiatives around the world.”

USAID ASSIST Senior Gender Technical Advisor, Dr. Taroub Harb Faramand, MD, MPH, and President of WI-HER LLC (Women Influencing Health, Education and Rule of Law), will lead a presentation on gender integration through the USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project at USAID.

Dr. Taroub Harb Faramand, MD, MPH, President of WI-HER LLC

This presentation will describe how the USAID ASSIST Project integrates gender by incorporating modern improvement techniques to identify and overcome gender-related issues and barriers to achieve better outcomes for women, men, boys and girls.  The presentation will focus specifically on gender integration activities in the Safe male circumcision (SMC), Non-communicable diseases, and in PMTCT programming.  It will describe gender integration planning methods and will also discuss the use of sex-disaggregated data for improvement and illustrate how to move from analysis to intervention through stories from the field. The presentation will also share relevant tools developed for the USAID ASSIST Project which have aided the project to integrate gender and track progress, such as multi-facility and multi-region improvement databases for collecting and analyzing sex-disaggregated data. We will also share lessons learned and examples of what does not work.
