Questions traitées par le forum

- The Caucus has considered a number of policy issues and gender-related law such as the Child Care, Protection and Justice Act of 2010, the Deceased Estates (Wills, Inheritance and Protection) Act of 2011 and the Gender Equality Bill passed in Parliament in 2013.
The Caucus has built networks with many women within and outside Malawi. Members have monitored activities that promote the economic empowerment of rural women. They have carried consultative meetings with the community in their constituencies on the issues which affect women: gender equality in political representation; securing better access to poorer women to microloans; securing sustainable access to clean water and securing better reproductive health.
- The Caucus lobbied the Department of Reproductive Health and the Ministry of Finance for an increase in the budget allocation on family planning in Malawi to ensure that the problem of maternal mortality is reduced in the country.
