GFF Roadmap for Advancing Gender Equality

Every year, over five million women and children die from preventable or treatable diseases. More than 800 women and adolescent girls die every day from preventable reasons associated with pregnancy, childbirth, and lack of access to reproductive health care. This reflects the profound gender inequality that undermines the health and wellbeing of women, adolescents and children.

This roadmap aims to strengthen global efforts and support a systematized countryled process that addresses gender inequality. The Roadmap also aims to make explicit how the Global Financing Facility for Women, Children and Adolescents (GFF) will double down and deepen its engagement to support governments to close gender gaps.
