The National Gender Policy (2007) includes provisions on gender-based violence, suh as domestic violence, sexual harassment, trafficking in human beings, and sexual violence.
The objectives of the Policy are as follows:
1) To reduce gender inequalities so that all women and men, girls and boys, are able to move out of poverty and to achieve improved and sustainable livelihoods;
2) To increase knowledge and understanding of human rights among women and men so that they can identify violations, demand, access, seek redress and enjoy their rights;
3) To strengthen women's presence and capacities in decision making for their meaningful participation in administrative and political processes;
4) To address gender inequalities and ensure inclusion of gender analysis in macro-economic policy formulation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation.
