Sector Snapshots

These sector snapshots briefly examine gaps and opportunities across 14 sectors that are priorities for USAID. 

Why Gender Equality Matters to USAID Programs

Each snapshot presents illustrative data on how gender inequalities manifest in that sector, addressing key drivers of these disparities, their impacts on sector outcomes, and some of the promising approaches to mutually reinforce sector-specific and gender-equality objectives and impacts. Where available, this analysis has drawn on intersectional gender data, which shed light on the unique experiences and vulnerabilities of women, men, and gender-diverse individuals across different ages, races/ethnicities, geographies, and so on.
