National Gender Policy to get upgraded

THE Government has approved the National Gender Policy 2014 which is a review of the 2000 policy.
The review of the 2000 policy was necessitated by a number of developments at national, regional and international levels. These included global best gender practices, research findings; increase in gender-based violence in Zambia, human trafficking, as well as drug abuse and trafficking; gender disparities in positions of decision-making; emerging health issues affecting mostly women and the negative impact of climate change.
The 2014 National Gender Policy’s aim is to ensure attainment of gender equality and equity in the development process by redressing the existing gender imbalances.
