In 2009, UN Women (then UNIFEM) produced a Report based on a scoping mission that mapped and assessed options as well as strategic entry points for work on GRB. With various changes in key laws and policies pertinent to gender equality during the past six years, in 2015, UN Women in Viet Nam decided to revisit the 2009 Report’s findings and recommendations, validate their relevance six year later and identify current opportunities to introduce GRB in Viet Nam.
