Women's rights in Myanmar

Description

Myanmar is one of the least developed countries and is a fragile state. Inequality of sexes and gender based discrimination and violence hinder democratic development in the country. The objective of the project is to advance women's rights in three areas still suffering from conflict (Rakhine, Northern Shan and Kachin). The project aims to integrate prevention and response for gender based violence into general sexual and reproductive health services. The project is implemented by UNFPA. The duration of the project is three years and Finland's contribution 3,65 million euros.
