Evidence-based Measures of Empowerment for Research on Gender Equality (EMERGE) is an initiative focused on measurement of gender equality and empowerment. The platform is designed as a repository of measures and resources around gender equality and empowerment for researchers and practitioners working on development, program monitoring and evaluation, and for consideration of state or national indicators to monitor progress on UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG).


The mission of the Center on Gender Equity and Health is to conduct innovative multidisciplinary research to understand and eliminate gender inequities in health, and to provide academic and practitioner training toward achievement of these goals.
