This Law promotes equality in the political, economic and social rights between men and women. It establishes the general principles underlying forthcoming public policies,  guaranteeing the exercise of such equality. Ministries are asked to prioritize women's access to their services, especially education and health. This must be done by improving the design, execution and implementation of their forthcoming legislations.
