The Program for the Advancement of Gender Equality (PAGE)

Women and girls in Pakistani households bear a disproportionately high share of the burden of poverty. Widespread gender inequality rooted in a host of cultural and social practices and discriminatory laws restrict women's equal participation with men in the country's development.

CIDA's commitment to gender equality is well known to partners and stakeholders in both Canada and Pakistan and given this positive reputation, CIDA finds itself well-positioned to work towards advancing gender equality in Pakistan.
