About the SOGIGESC Unit

The Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, Gender Expression and Sex Characteristics Unit (SOGIGESC), was set up in June of 2018 to coordinate government policy in the field of LGBTIQ equality and provide support to other Ministries and Departments where required.

The main task of the SOGIGESC Unit is the implementation of the LGBTIQ Strategy and Action Plan 2018-2022 that includes over 50 measures primarily aimed at mainstreaming LGBTIQ equality across a number of life spheres such as employment, education, health, and sport and to address a number of intersectional areas such as aging, migration and disability. This strategy and action plan follows the LGBTIQ Action Plan 2015-2017.

The SOGIGESC Unit has also published its Annual Report September 2018 – September 2019, which outlines the unit’s work and progress in reaching the targets set in the strategy and action plan.
