International Center for Human Development (ICHD) in partnership with the Stichting Save the Children Nederland (STC Netherlands), Armavir Development Centre (ADC), Martuni Women’s Community Council (MWCC) and Save the Children (STC) International is implementing the project “Combating Gender-Biased Sex Selection in Armenia” funded by the European Union since May 2015.

The overall objective of the project is to contribute to a reduction of gender-biased sex selection in Armenia. The project will result in at least 15% positive change in knowledge, attitude and perception of target population groups toward gender-biased sex selection and at least a 10% reduction in the number of sex-selective abortions. This impact will be consolidated through three major results: (R1) Local CSOs, community leaders and authorities are equipped with knowledge and skills and have understanding of the negative consequences of gender-biased sex selection; (R2) Positive change in public perception and attitude towards gender-biased sex selection is achieved; and, (R3) Policy framework is effective in prevention of gender-biased sex selection. The project envisages achieving its three specific objectives through the sequence of interlinked activities including policy analysis and advice, research, institutional capacity building, training, awareness raising and advocacy campaign.
