The report presents an up-to-date analysis of gender disparities in Jordan to inform development assistance programs by the USAID for the 2013-2017 strategic plan. The assessment report is prepared by the Global Health Technical Assistance Project, funded by USAID Jordan and therefore, it is based on a literature review and field work of the 21 focus group discussions held in Amman, Irbid, Tafileh and Zarqa. The report establishes that Jordan has begun to transition to a knowledge-based economy with the national advantage as its people. It also points out that despite the investments that have helped address gender equality issues, Jordan continues to bear low female participation in the labor markets, gender stereotypes about the role of females and males and conservative cultural norms. The report includes a sector-by-sector analysis, recommendations, gender review and an illustrative implementation plan. It concludes with key recommendations on the wide breadth of the USAID Jordan portfolio with a key emphasis on gender issues.
