We welcome the steps taken by the Dominican Republic in its programmes and policies in corporating a gender perspective aimed at raising the awareness of gender equality and protecting women and girls from gender-based violence. We recommend Dominican Republic to continue with its efforts in preventing gender-based violence.

4. The Strategic National Plan 2012 – 2016 for improving health care and to increase the quality of sexual and reproductive health services is notable. The efforts put in place by Dominican Republic to address the concerns of the child labour are noteworthy, which is indicative of the Government’s commitment to protect and promote human rights of children.
