USAID/Senegal, in its efforts to support the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) to reduce the incidence and prevalence of Malaria in Sub-Saharan Africa, awarded a three year contract to Abt Associates under the IRS II Task Order 4 in August 2011. The main purpose of the contract is to implement a USAID-funded Indoor Residential Spraying project (IRS) in six districts.
This report offers the results of a review of gender issues to help ensure that the IRS project contributes to not only equitable opportunities for both men and women but also to protecting the safety, privacy, and dignity of women as well as men during all phases of program implementation.
