|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. Placing women’s rights at the center of all its efforts, UN Women leads and coordinates United Nations system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality (GE) and gender mainstreaming translate into action globally. It provides strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts.
Working in concert, UN Women and the National Ministry of Gender, Child, and Social Welfare in South Sudan, have developed a great partnership to promote gender equality through shared dialogue, advocacy, and cooperation programs. UN Women continues to support the National Ministry of Gender, Child and Social Welfare in the Government of the Republic of South Sudan to achieve its mandate, in promoting gender equality and safeguarding the rights of women, children, persons with disability, and other vulnerable groups. One key task within the ministry’s mandate is to ensure that all government institutions, CSOs, and the private sector are gender sensitive and that they take into consideration the diverse needs of the population in the design, planning, and implementation of annual work plans. The Ministry continues to ensure that diverse needs are also considered within the monitoring and evaluation of policies, programs, plans, and projects.
Some of the work that the Ministry of Gender Child and Social Welfare undertakes to achieve this includes the adoption of the National Gender Policy (2013) which upholds the government’s commitment to the principles of equality and human rights as enshrined in the TCSS 2011 and as amended in the R ARCSS (2019). To uphold the key objectives outlined in the National Gender Policy, the Ministry has established gender focal persons (GFPs) in line with Ministries and Commissions, and the gender focal persons are tasked with the responsibilities of mainstreaming gender equality principles in their respective sectors. Ongoing training on gender, gender mainstreaming, and gender-responsive budgeting has also been conducted with the focal persons.
Another prioritized area for the Ministry is the MGCSW strategy on GBV, which includes the developed Standard Operating Procedure for GBV support, prevention, and protection. The strategy also contains a Strategic Action Plan for Ending Child Marriage in South Sudan (2017-2030) which is being implemented by the States and the paramount chiefs. The implementation of the strategy has led to a newly established Juvenile and GBV Court in Juba, the Special Protection Units at Police Stations, and the One-Stop-Center within Juba Teaching Hospitals and within State Hospitals. Still, more work needs to be done on developing the data management system for GBV (GBVIMS), to monitor GBV trends and GBV occurrences.
