This report presents the findings of a country review carried out in Cameroon by NTAKEU Bruno and Fon Mercy under the programme "Integrating gender responsive budgeting into the aid effectiveness agenda" launched by UNIFEM and the European Commission (EC) in 2008. The first part of the report looks at the macroeconomic context and the context of aid management in Cameroon. The second part examines the country's experience in gender-responsive budgeting. The last part focuses on an analysis of the inclusion of gender in the health sector by reviewing the sector strategy document in this domain. The study makes recommendations for putting in place mainstreaming mechanisms for integrating gender into the sector policies and budgets.
