Gender Issues

UNICEF is fully committed to Millennium Development Goal 3 for the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls, and recognizes that achieving gender equality is not only an important goal in itself, but is essential for the achievement of other goals. As stated in the MTSP 2006-2009, applying a human rights-based approach and promoting gender equality are the "foundation strategies" for UNICEF work.
