Gender

Expertise

Half the world’s population is women, but they make up 70 percent of the world’s poor.

Millions of women struggle to get food, water, and shelter. They lack access to health care and are deprived of education.

When girls and women have access to health care, education, economic opportunities, and civil and human rights, entire families benefit.

The JBS Gender Practice helps women and girls:

  • Access education and training
  • Participate in and benefit from public and private opportunities
  • Achieve physical security, especially freedom from violence

We conduct research and analyses on gender-responsive programs focusing on root causes and specific issues. We collect data, measure progress, flag issues, and identify solutions. We design and lead evaluations, as well as scaling and sustainability studies.

Our work in more than 100 countries has contributed to the growing body of knowledge about how to improve the lives of women and girls.
