ADVANTAGES

Several advances have been achieved, particularly in key WHO corporate processes, as specific guidelines for integrating gender, equity and human rights are now reflected in the WHO Country Cooperation Strategy and chapter 5 of the WHO Handbook for Guideline Development. In addition, the Organization has made great strides in meeting and exceeding requirements on performance indicators detailed in the United Nations System-wide Action Plan towards gender quality and the empowerment of women. In 2016, WHO significantly improved its UN-SWAP performance, with 80% of the Performance Indicators either “Meeting” or “Exceeding Requirements” compared to 60% in 2015 and 53% in 2014.
