Regional Delegation of MPs from Moldova, Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia visited Stockholm between 30 September and 1 October 2015 to learn about the Swedish experiences on mainstreaming gender into government policies and budgets and the political strategies of the Government. Moldova was represented by Members of the Parliament Ms. Maria Ciobanu and Ms. Lidia Lupu. The delegation of MPs had meetings with key institutions and bodies working on the implementation of the gender equality policy, with aim to encourage strong parliamentary advocacy for gender responsive policy making in their countries - Parliament of Sweden, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Health and Social Affairs, National Audit Office of Sweden, and Discrimination Ombudsman.

The visit was supported by #UNWomen, in the framework of its regional programme “Promoting Gender Responsive Policies in South East Europe, phase II” generously funded by the Austrian Development Agency and Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation.
