The National Gender and Equality Commission, NGEC, was formally known as the National Commission on Gender and Development, NCGD under the Ministry of Gender, Children and Social Development. The NGEC is not explicitly mentioned by name in the New Constitution. Rather, it is a 'successor in title' Commission created from the Kenya National Human Rights and Equality Commission, KNHREC.
The objectives of this Commission are mainly to promote gender equality and freedom from discrimination.
