Gender Expert for the Social Protection & Gender (SPG) unit in the Planning & Development, Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP)
In the face of developmental challenges in Pakistan, including the large spectra of gender inequality encompassing women’s empowerment, economic dimensions and gaps in fulfilment of women’s reproductive rights, UNFPA, UNWOMEN and UNICEF designed a five-year (2018-22) joint programme - “Empowering and Protecting Pakistan’s Women, Youth, Girls and Boys for a Developed Tomorrow” (AAWAZ II Programme).
The AAWAZ II Programme, aims to promote the rights of children, women, youth, religious minorities, people with disabilities, and other excluded groups in Pakistan. It aims to achieve the following outcome: “Pakistani society and government institutions support increased voice, choice and control for women, girls, boys, youth, religious minorities and other marginalized groups, protect them from exploitation and prevent discrimination and intolerance at all levels”.
As all participating UN agencies are engaging with government and non-government institutions and organizations in Pakistan to address Gender-Based Violence (GBV). The inter-related nature of the different forms of GBV warrants holistic policy and programming by the Government to address gender inequality and vulnerabilities of women or girls.
