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.
UN Women work in Tajikistan contributes to the implementation of UN Women Global Strategic Plan (SP) through the implementation of the MCO Annual Work Plan for Tajikistan and in direct alignment with the country’s national development priorities. In Tajikistan in 2017-2020 UN Women intends to support the state’s efforts to implement its gender equality policy by focusing on initiatives in the following thematic priorities: 1) women’s economic empowerment; 2) ending violence against women and improving access to public services, including civil registration services; and 3) increasing women’s participation in conflict prevention and engendering disaster risk reduction. UN Women leads the extended Gender Theme Group, which provides a platform for national and international stakeholders to coordinate gender-specific activities in Tajikistan and to ensure joint consolidated support to the state to enforce its international commitments on gender equality and women’s empowerment.

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.
