Sub Output 2: Women, men, and young people have improved capacity to change gender and socio-cultural norms and practices that perpetuate gender-based violence, son preference, child marriage and other harmful practices
UNFPA Strategic Plan Outcome 3: Gender equality, the empowerment of all women and girls, and reproductive rights are advanced in development and humanitarian settings Gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls are essential for reaching those furthest behind. SDG 5 addresses gender equality priorities including targets to end all forms of violence against women and girls, eliminate harmful practices and achieve reproductive rights. Violence against women and girls is one of the most prevalent human rights violations. It undermines the health, dignity, security and autonomy of its victims and yet it remains shrouded in a culture of silence. Victims of violence can suffer from sexual and reproductive health consequences, including child, early and forced marriage, unwanted pregnancies, unsafe abortion, traumatic fistula, and even death. The programme will seek to prevent and respond to gender-based violence, both in development and humanitarian contexts and address harmful practices. This component contributes to UNDAF Outcome 2 on Social Development and on UNDAF Outcome 4 on Governance, Rule of Law and Human Rights.
