An estimated 1.22 million Pacific Island women, men and children have been able to access services and information across 14 partner countries through initiatives supported by Pacific Women. Pacific Women is one of the largest global commitments to gender equality. It partners with governments, local and international non-government organisations (NGOs), the private sector, disabled people’s organisations, coalitions and others to improve the political, economic and social opportunities of Pacific women and to end violence against women and girls.  With Pacific governments and Pacific NGOs implementing more than half of the initiatives under the Pacific Women portfolio, the emphasis is on partnerships and locally-driven development.

Through a 10-year commitment, Pacific Women connects more than 170 gender equality initiatives supported by Australia and implemented by over 160 partners across 14 Pacific Island countries.
