The UK sees women's political empowerment, participation and leadership as a critical foundation for girls' and women's broader rights and for making progress on gender equality. The UK is closely following developments in Haiti including the upcoming constitutional referendum. Whilst we are not currently providing direct bilateral support the UK supports the work of the United Nations. This includes that of the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary General and of the UN Special Political Mission (the United Nations Integrated Office in Haiti), in their ongoing diplomatic engagement with the Haitian authorities on both the proposed constitutional referendum and elections.
