This module seeks information about women’s and men’s roles in household activities, household decision-making, decision-making for women’s and children’s health care, and attitudes around gender norms. Different from other knowledge, practices, and coverage (KPC) modules, the gender module aims to provide program implementers with a better understanding of how gender-based attitudes, norms, roles, and behaviors may affect health-seeking behaviors and health outcomes, including reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health (RMNCH). Understanding this context is crucial for integrating gender in program design as well as better enabling families and communities to practice healthy behaviors and to seek and access health services. This module also differs from other KPC modules in that it includes a questionnaire for both women and men. Guidance for sampling both men and women is included in the KPC generic protocol.
