DescriptionThis article looks at the challenges and opportunities we have encountered while teaching a short course on gender, health, and communicable disease. The course is aimed at health policy-makers, planners, and managers from national ministries, international and national health organisations, and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). It ran for the first time in April 2000, with participants from Asia, Africa, and Europe. In this article, we explore some of the gender issues that arise in working to prevent and treat communicable disease, and discuss the process, materials, and concepts used in the course. This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
