Abstract:

In June 2014, the government of Haiti published a paternity act that recognizes equal rights for children born within and outside of marriage. This act represents an important legal shift, enshrining the principle that all children are on an equal footing. The USAID-funded Health Policy Project AKSE program documented the gaps that the law fills and why this achievement is so important for the Ministry of Women’s Affairs, the women’s organizations that fought for it, and for children in Haiti.
