The head of the United Nations Population Fund is in New Zealand this week holding high level meetings on gender equality.

Dr Natalia Kanem, who is a medical doctor with expertise in Public Health, has met with the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Family Planning and women's organisations to discuss better health, education and rights for women and girls in the region.

She told Jenny Meyer the Pacific reset is an important move forward but to really make a difference in the lives of women, it is men who need to step up.
