Consultant for a Gender Analysis of the Pacific Trachoma Programs – Nauru and Solomon Islands.

Organisation: The Fred Hollows Foundation

The Fred Hollows Foundation (The Foundation) has been working with Ministries of Health and other partners in six Pacific Island Countries to eliminate trachoma – a neglected tropical disease – as a public health problem. Since 2014, The Foundation has supported the implementation of trachoma surveys and elimination activities in line with the WHO SAFE Strategy. Trachoma affects some of the most vulnerable people, especially women and children living in poverty. Active trachoma is commonly found in children, while trachoma-related blindness is reportedly up to four times higher in women who are more susceptible to infection due to their disproportionately high contact with children as compared to men.  

A gender analysis of the trachoma programs is required to see if the above trends are followed in the Pacific; and to examine the equitable reach of the activities implemented to date. This is the first gender analysis of Pacific trachoma programs, and the findings will inform further research; identify any gaps in the programs and inform targeted activities going forward; and guide gender analyses and activities in the broader regional program.
