Country/Region Profile

  • Country / Region profile of: Haiti

    Although almost half of the households in Haiti are headed by women, patriarchal traditions and social discrimination continue to severely restrict women. Violence against women is also widespread in Haiti, and extreme poverty and the 2010 earthquake have made women even more vulnerable to sexual violence and exploitation. Haiti has been plagued by violent conflicts, chronic political and economic instability, and multiple natural disasters. The United Nations (UN) Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) was established pursuant to Security Council Resolution 1542 (2004) and is expected to be renewed. Additionally, Haiti has had long-standing conflict with the Dominican Republic, its neighboring country, that dates back to the colonial period. Haiti ratified the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) in 1981 and is not ranked in the 2013 Global Gender Gap Index (GGI). Greater women's participation in the recovery process is vital for the peace and development of Haiti as gender issues and women's development needs are not being adequately addressed, despite UN involvement and international aid.
