The Australian Government, through Pacific Women, has committed approximately $5.1 million over 10 years (2012–2022) to initiatives supporting women’s empowerment in Nauru.
The second Nauru Country Plan (2018–2022) includes engaging a Psychosocial Counsellor through the Pacific Women Support Unit to handle cases of domestic violence and prevention. The Country Plan also supports activities to strengthen the role of the health sector in identifying and supporting victims of violence and gender mainstreaming support for DFAT’s programs in Nauru.
In addition to Pacific Women, DFAT makes an important contribution to gender equality in Nauru through mainstreaming gender outcomes in the aid program, as well as through political, diplomatic and corporate activities.
