The Gender Project

The Gender (Gender Equity aND DEmography Research) Project is a collaborative research initiative between the UCSD Center on Gender Equity and Health in San Diego and the International Institute for Population Sciences in Mumbai. This work uses the National Family Health Survey and other representative data to explore gender inequities nationally and subnationally across India. Our research is designed to inform evidence-based programs and policies to improve the health and status of women and girls, and ultimately, to support India's achievement of Sustainable Development Goals 5 (Gender Equality and Empowerment) and 3 (Good Health and Well-Being). The Gender Project focuses on both the application of novel and inter-disciplinary analytic approaches using a gender lens, as well as training of emerging scholars in applied gender analysis.
