The Papua New Guinea Country Gender Assessment, supported by the Asian Development Bank, the World Bank, and other development partners, as well as the government of PNG (2013), is based on the three themes of access to resources through education, health, and entrepreneurship; access to rights through legal and social empowerment, including power to address gender-based family and sexual violence; and access to voice through participation in decision-making in politics and in the public and private sectors. It demonstrates that PNG still has a long way to go in achieving gender equality.
