Gendering Malawi’s National Nutrition Policy using the integrated framework for gender analysis in nutrition policy

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) demonstrate the importance of integrating a gender equality perspective into all areas of development work. With the exception of goal five, which specifically focuses on gender, eight of the SDGs include gender and gender equality. For over two decades’ gender discourse has been dominated by a focus on women, overlooking opportunities to engage men as partners in achieving gender equity. Achieving gender equity requires acknowledging dynamics in the relationships between men and women that lead to the differentiated allocation of resources, programmes and decisions based on gender. Equality cannot be achieved by excluding men from development programmes and focusing solely on women. Nutrition policies offer opportunities to progress towards long-term equality development goals.
