Summary
This project was undertaken to produce a Sourcebook to support the integration of poverty and gender concerns into health professional education curricula. The project is expected to lead to strengthened health planning, policy-making and service delivery, through improved capacities of health professionals to analyse and address the interrelationships between poverty, gender and health. This booklet presents an overview of the first phase of the project, which involved designing and fielding surveys to ministries of health and to health professional educational institutions in the Western Pacific Region. The analysis of the survey results, presented in this publication, will guide the development of the Sourcebook
