Women and Child Rights

Ensuring the promotion, respect and protection of women and children’s rights is a priority in the human rights agenda because both women and children remain disproportionately at higher risk of human rights violation.

Key strategic interventions areas include legal review and research/investigation of systemic violations; monitoring compliance with national and international standards; empowerment and mainstreaming as well as fostering partnership with all stakeholders.
