Introduction to GBA+
Programs typically have a specific objective, which means it is important that the delivery model corresponds with the intended outcome of the program. GBA+ can help identify important considerations for delivering a program to diverse groups of women, men and gender-diverse people, as well as the most effective delivery mechanisms, by asking questions such as:
- Who is the target population for the program?
- Will the program have consequences for individuals outside the target population?
- What are the characteristics of these groups? (Consider factors such as location, socio-economic status, culture and so on.)
- If the intended outcome of the program is to address the needs of a diverse population of people, are different program components required to reach different groups?
- Have stakeholders been consulted? Which ones?
- Are the administrative processes used to access a program appropriate for the target audience?
- Do the data collection guidelines, forms and processes ensure that data collected can be disaggregated by sex as well as by other factors and personal characteristics?
- What strategies can be put in place to mitigate these unintended impacts?
