II. Organizational Context
UNFPA is the United Nations sexual and reproductive health agency, with the field offices present in more than 150 countries
across the world and a large number of people employed as international and local staff members. The UNFPA office in Baku
employs a team of eight persons engaged in the implementation of the projects and programmes in the field of family planning,
gender equality and population dynamics.
The overall objective of the three-year Joint Programme “Challenging Gender Stereotypes and Practices in the EaP
Countries”, implemented by UNFPA and UN Women at the regional and national levels, is to address the rpoblems of gender
absed discrimination and violence and strengthen equal rights and opportunities for women and men, through shifting social
perceptions, gender stereotypes and men’s participation in caretaking. Most specifically, the Programme aims at shifting societal
perceptions around gender stereotypes and patriarchal norms limiting women’s rights (Objective 1); improve men’s involvement in
care-taking of their children and participation in father’s programmes (Objective 2); and spur the adoption of best practices in
perpetrator’s programmes among the ministries of social affairs and Programme for perpetrators in the respective countries
(Objective 3). Specifically, the regional component collates global and regional experiences to coordinate activities that will have an
impact across all six countries within this proposal, namely Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine.
The Azerbaijani share of the programme targets government bodies, civil society organizations, and direct beneficiaries in the
communities. It envisions a series of intervention strategies designed to contribute to the respective governments’ efforts in
advancing gender equality, including promoting social change and addressing the underlying structural gender barriers and norms
with particular emphasis on the phenomena of domestic violence and son preference, as well as changing gender stereotypes and
improving gender sensitiveness on the related family policies, all by introducing innovative practices in the framework of the
national priorities and the respective international normative charters. The programme proposes to collaborate, particularly at the
local and community level, with government bodies, civil society organizations, different non-traditional partners and other UN
agencies and multilateral organizations.
This project is led by UNFPA in close partnership with UN Women. UNFPA is globally recognized as leading agency in the area of
gender equality and prevention of harmful practices against women and girls and has a long experience of addressing challenging gender stereotypes and practices, affecting social change and advancing women’s and girls’ empowerment in the country.
This is a Regional Programme funded by the European Union, UNFPA and UN Women.
