ARHR Trains Partners on the Gender Model Family

ARHR has trained partners on the Gender Model Family (GMF), with support from SEND Ghana, as part of activities to implement the ‘Putting Women at the Centre of PHC’ initiative with funding from Co-Impact. 

Held in Accra, the training brought together 12 participants, including two representatives from six partner organizations who were empowered to understand how the GMF works.

The training equipped participants with the necessary tools to utilize the GMF effectively to implement the initiative and promote primary health care within their communities. The training session underscored the importance of gender sensitivity, respect, and patience in facilitating impactful engagements at the community level and enacting tangible changes.

A key aspect of the training emphasized the exploration and prioritization of the triple role of women. These included women’s pivotal contributions to unpaid care work; sharing household responsibilities; and advocating for equitable access to resources. The government’s policies and programs were to be leveraged to address the specific needs of women and girls.

Participants were urged to recognize and elevate mentors within the GMF, exemplary couples whose lives embody the principles of gender equality, thereby becoming inspirational figures in their communities.

The training concluded with a renewed commitment from participants to champion primary healthcare initiatives within their respective areas of influence, to achieve a new era of inclusive development driven by the principles of the GMF.
