RinGs has three main aims:
Synthesising the evidence base. Better understanding the available evidence base on gender and health systems to create tools, case studies and guidelines for researchers and decision makers.
Stimulating new research. Working with partners to generate new knowledge and supporting others to bring a gender-lens to their work through our small grants project.
Encouraging mutual learning and research uptake. Running a range of capacity development and training programmes with students, researchers, policy makers and practitioners to support gender analysis.
We were initially funded by the UK Department for International Development in 2014, and worked in partnership with Future Health Systems, ReBUILD, RESYST and COMDIS-HSD to galvanise gender and ethics analysis in health systems. These relationships continue.
