GRACe is guided by the values of gender equality, women empowerment, integrity, respect for human rights and excellence. These values lead us to respond to the gap in high quality, policy-oriented research on gender and reproductive health and rights in Sudan and the region.

Specifically, GRACe undertakes systematic reviews and critical researches from a gender and socio-cultural perspective, and strengthens the capacity of researchers for policy- and action-oriented research in the areas of reproductive health and rights, FGM/C, violence against women and children, child marriage, maternal and neonatal mortality.

GRACe also establishes and develops links and interaction between academic lecturers, researchers, students, practitioners and stakeholders, who share its values. This also aims at facilitating a process of systematically sharing and using knowledge, skills and experiences in gender and reproductive health rights by providing high-quality context- and need-specific training and capacity building.
