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.
The Policy, Programme and Intergovernmental Division (PPID) provides intellectual and strategic leadership on normative support and the delivery of integrated policy and program advice, including through policy analysis and gender mainstreaming. The Division leverages innovation, knowledge management, and cutting-edge technical expertise to support UN Women programs and to build the capacity of partners to deliver results on gender equality and women’s empowerment.

The Elsie Initiative Fund for Uniformed Women in Peace Operations (EIF) (https://elsiefund.org/), is hosted by UN Women under the A PSH section in PPID in the Headquarters based in New York, USA. The EIF aims to support and incentivize efforts to increase the meaningful participation of uniformed women in United Nations peace operations through financial assistance or financial incentives. It seeks to accelerate progress towards achieving the United Nations Security Council’s declared target of doubling the rate of women’s participation within police and military contingents by 2020 compared to 2015, as well as supporting targets to increase the proportion of women serving as military observers, staff officers and individual police officers (75%).
UNWOMEN, through its PSH Section, is supporting countries to ensure gender equality is mainstreamed in counterterrorism and Preventing Violent Extremism (PVE) efforts of the United Nations and member states. Such work is being done at country and global level. UN Women in partnership with the European Union implements the global project on Preventing Violent Extremism: Integrating Gender Perspectives. While the project is implemented globally, it is also piloted in two countries namely, Jordan and Pakistan. UN Women also chairs the Gender Working Group of the UN Counter Terrorism Compact. Through this role UN Women implement the annual work plan of the working group on behalf of the UN entities participating in the gender working group (25%).

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.
