IMAGES Co-Producers and Partners

The International Men and Gender Equality Survey (IMAGES) was co-created in 2008 by Equimundo (formerly known as Promundo-US working initially in partnership with Instituto Promundo) and the International Center for Research on Women. Since then, IMAGES and IMAGES-inspired studies have been carried out in over 45 countries, reflecting the dedication and effort of several research leaders and research teams.

With generous support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Equimundo undertook the process of streamlining and organizing these global applications of IMAGES and IMAGES-inspired studies, resulting in the indexed repository of questions from 33 studies on this website and a harmonized global dataset.

We are grateful for the spirit of open learning and collaboration with which researchers from these 33 country studies have shared their resources during this systematization process.

Given the global scope of IMAGES, every attempt has been made to be as comprehensive as possible in listing research leaders, key implementation partners, and co-producers for all the IMAGES and IMAGES-inspired studies included on this website. If any names are missing from this page, please contact us at research@equimundo.org to let us know, so we can appropriately acknowledge the hard work of all research teams and individuals involved.

IMAGES has received recognition, support, and funding from numerous international organizations, including the World Bank, CARE, UN Women, the United Nations Population Fund, the United Nations Development Programme, the Ford Foundation, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the International Development Research Centre (Canada), Global Affairs Canada, the United Kingdom Department for International Development, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, Oak Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation.
