Author: UNFPA

This publication is about gender-responsive programming for poverty reduction in Africa. It demonstrates how gender inequality contributes to poverty, slows economic growth and reduces human well-being. Eliminating gender gaps and gender inequality means bringing the disadvantaged at par with the favored, something that is yet to be achieved in access to education and health in many African countries.
