UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.

Haiti has experienced a multidimensional crisis between 2018 and 2023. Repeated violence starting in July 2018, the expiration of the legislative power, and the absence of leadership in the judiciary reached their peak with the assassination of the president in July 2021. The complexities of politics and natural risks resulted in poor economic performance. Plans for constitutional reform and legislative elections have been postponed indefinitely, and the security situation has deteriorated. The very limited ability of the security and justice sector to respond to the situation of insecurity and conflict has further eroded public trust and the overall rule of law. 2022 and 2023 have been particularly difficult for the country, especially in the metropolitan area where violence has caused many Haitians to leave their homes and their livelihoods to find refuge either outside the country or in other regions of the country, as well as creating large internal displacement and IDP camps.

Violence against women and girls (VAWG) continues to represent one of the most severe manifestations of discrimination in the country and an alarming trend of sexual violence perpetrated by armed gangs as a weapon to exert control over the population has emerged in recent years. Armed gangs have used rape, including collective rapes, and other forms of sexual violence to instill fear, punish, subjugate, and inflict pain on local populations with the ultimate goal of expanding their areas of influence, particularly in the capital of Port-au-Prince and increasingly in the Artibonite regional. Domestic and family violence has also continued to rise in this context of humanitarian and security crisis but has been left largely under-prioritized in the immediate response. Furthermore, the country has severe data gaps with regards to VAWG which is a major concern for policy making and for accountability.


In the past programmatic cycle, UN Women has implemented the Spotlight Initiative focused on the reduction of family and sexual violence, which ended in December of 2023. Other projects have included efforts to target electoral violence against women and small grant projects under the Women, Peace and Humanitarian Fund (WPHF). Under UN Women’s new Strategic Note 2023-2024, EVAWG is one of its four strategic goals, with a specific focus on the following SN EVAWG outputs:

  1. The quality and coverage of care, recovery and protection services for women and girl survivors of VAWG are strengthened to meet their needs in development settings, during crises and conflict situations.
  2. The capacities of the justice and police sectors and civil society partners working to facilitate access of women survivors of VAWG to justice and protection mechanisms are strengthened.
  3. Women, girls and communities have the capacities and tools to lead efforts to promote positive social norms and alternative positive forms of masculinities.
  4. The capacities and leadership of public institutions and women’s movement organizations are strengthened to reform and implement the legislative framework and public policies in a participatory manner, and to produce reliable data on VAWG.   

Moreover, on October 2nd 2023 the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 2699 (2023) resolution to authorize a Multinational Security Support (MSS) mission to Haiti. This pivotal mission seeks to respond to Haiti’s request for international support to address insecurity and create the necessary security conditions for long-term stability and growth.  The resolution authorizes the MSS mission to provide operational, static, and training support to the Haitian National Police. A fundament issue highlighted by the resolution and for the support to the National Police is the response to VAWG, particularly sexual violence, and will be a pillar of UN Women’s future programming.

In July 2010, the United Nations General Assembly created UN Women, the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The creation of UN Women came about as part of the UN reform agenda, bringing together resources and mandates for greater impact. It merges and builds on the important work of four previously distinct parts of the UN system (DAW, OSAGI, INSTRAW and UNIFEM), which focused exclusively on gender equality and women's empowerment.

Diversity and inclusion:

At UN Women, we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment of mutual respect. UN Women recruits, employs, trains, compensates, and promotes regardless of race, religion, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, ability, national origin, or any other basis covered by appropriate law. All employment is decided on the basis of qualifications, competence, integrity and organizational need.

If you need any reasonable accommodation to support your participation in the recruitment and selection process, please include this information in your application.

UN Women has a zero-tolerance policy on conduct that is incompatible with the aims and objectives of the United Nations and UN Women, including sexual exploitation and abuse, sexual harassment, abuse of authority and discrimination.
