Pashinyan. “We will be consistent in the way of protecting women’s rights and expanding their opportunities”

“I consider it important to note that we will consistently move forward in the protection of women’s rights and opportunities in the Republic of Armenia,” RA Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated at today’s Cabinet meeting on the National Strategy for the Protection of Human Rights of the Republic of Armenia and its 2020-2022 Strategy in his speech on approving the action plan.


According to the Prime Minister, today the majority of Armenia’s population is women, and we cannot speak of serious economic progress without creating opportunities for women to properly realize their potential, without encouraging women to help their families overcome poverty.

First, it is about servicemen, persons deprived of their liberty, persons in closed or semi-detention facilities, as well as those affected by domestic violence.


The Deputy Minister said that concrete measures are planned to raise public awareness of services available in the area of health protection, both in terms of early disease prevention, as well as in improving the opportunities for people to protect their rights in the field of health care and assistance.
