The Gender Policy seeks to complement and strengthen the focus on gender equality in the Centre’s Strategic Plan. The policy will assist the Centre in integrating gender equity goals and objectives into all its research, interventions, service and training activities organizationally so that they become internally and institutionally accepted. It will also deliver these objectives. The policy will be implemented until 2010 with anticipation that modifications thereafter will be based on the Centre’s progress in implementation and will address emerging issues.
Many government ministries, international and multilateral agencies, national and international NGOs have recognized the need to systematically address gender issues and promote gender mainstreaming, formulating their own gender policies. The Centre will follow this trend while at the same time remaining conscious of its uniqueness as a multidimensional organization, focusing on a range of activities including research, interventions, the delivery of health-related services and training.
