This comprehensive report reviews the existing evidence on:
- how gender influences the adoption of malaria preventive interventions, healthcare-seeking behaviour, and access to treatment;
- the current gaps and opportunities regarding the integration of gender into malaria research and development; and
- current gaps and opportunities in malaria advocacy and policy action at the global, regional, and national levels.
Overall, it calls for gender-intentional and transformative approaches to accelerate the success of malaria prevention, treatment, and elimination efforts. For example, malaria clinical trial designs could be made more effective and equitable by understanding and addressing the gender-specific barriers that limit the recruitment and retention of women.
