Research Design: This desk research is aimed at developing a series of thematic and brief multi‐dimensional data analyses (analytical briefs) focused on identifying the most relevant analytical determinants for women from different groups. For the present assignment, areas of concern are determined by the vulnerability factor/dimension.  Analytical briefs will be developed based on available statistical data and recourses as follows:

  • Women with Disability

  • Women with HIV
  • Women from Minority groups
  • Women in Science and Innovation

The objective of the assignment is to provide national stakeholders with brief but clear analysis, using a gender lens and other disaggregation factors (such as age, employment and/or marital status, education level, urban/rural place of residence, etc.) to understand statistical data measuring the progress in gender equality and the degree of vulnerability, marginalization, advantages, and benefits of particular groups of women in Kyrgyzstan; to describe the factors and determinants causing a particular status, and make out impact and correlation linked to certain issues/elements/events/areas, etc. (justified and accompanied by appropriate data tabulations).
