    Abstract This case study focuses on the integration of gender issues in medical education in Maharashtra, India, and its expansion to other states. The programme was selected as a promising practice because it addresses the integration of gender perspectives into medical education, recognised as vital for enhancing the competence of medical and healthcare professionals, enabling them to provide effective, culturally sensitive healthcare that promotes gender equity in health and improves wellbeing (House et al. 2021). Based on in-depth analyses of interviews and published materials, it documents and analyses contextual factors that gave rise to the gender in medical education (GME) initiative, the enabling factors and challenges encountered, some of the outcomes achieved and lessons learned, including those that might be transferable to other contexts working on integrating GME, both within India and abroad.
