Gender planning is specifically applied to primary health care. A theoretical discussion of issues which focus on greater 'mainstream' participation of women in health and development programmes is viewed as a process of empowerment. The theoretical discussion is integrated with a methodology for planning and evaluating gender-focused health programmes. Planning and evaluation are linked in a single feed-back relationship. Relevance of all investigations is discussed and specific methods suggested. © 1992.
