The contribution of women and girls to building a more sustainable and egalitarian future for all Haitians is magnified by the Government of Haiti and the UN as part of the celebration of International Women's Day, celebrated every year on March 8.

Gender equality is one of the 17 targets of the globally agreed Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). SDG 5 recognizes that gender equality is not just a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world.
