Grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the UN Charter, UN Women, among other issues, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls, empowerment of women and achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security. Placing women’s rights at the heart of all efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates the United Nations system to ensure that gender equality and gender mainstreaming commitments are turned to action everywhere.
UN Women is operational in Moldova since 2010. Currently, it is implementing its Strategic Note for 2014-2017.

These include, but not limited to rural women, Romani women, women with disabilities, young women, women living with or affected by HIV, women survivors of violence and trafficking, women migrants, elderly women and women in Transnistria and Gagauzia. We work with them to challenge the stereotypical image of women. We apply new tools to ensure women’s proactive engagement in designing, prototyping and implementing the state policies and plans.
