What is Mainstreaming ? The process of integrating defined policies, strategies or priorities into all areas and levels of institutional policy making, including planning, implementation, research, monitoring and evaluation, while promoting these through the participation of public bodies, social partners, NGOs and other relevant actors, so that women and men, girls and boys of all diverse populations can equally benefit and so that inequality is not perpetrated. In this way, mainstreaming helps to align policies, programs and operations with the long- term goal of the Health Agenda of the Americas of attaining equity in health for all, while increasing the efficiency of their implementation, and promoting a pro- active approach rather than responding to impacts as they unfold. (PAHO Definition)
