2005 - Malawi - Country Gender Profile
The Constitution of Malawi upholds equality between men and women, and prohibits sexbased discrimination. The government (GOM) has reiterated its commitment to promote gender equality by signing regional and international conventions on protecting women and children. The Government has also put in place a National Gender Policy and a national Gender Program for the implementation of the Policy. The Malawi Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper (MPRSP) and the Malawi Economic Growth Strategy (MEGS) provide a mid term planning tool within which the gender policy and the NGP is implemented.
