KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Gender Department and complaints registration centre have been established at the Educationinfo-icon Faculty of Ustad Rabbani University in Kabul to help implement the gender-based non-discrimination and anti-sexual harassment policy, an official said on Monday.

Education Faculty Dean Zabihullah Asadi told a gathering marking the establishment of Gender Department that sexual harassment was a global issue and it was a huge challenge for people, especially the womeninfo-icon.

He said the non-discrimination and anti-sexual harassment policy to be implemented at the higher education institutes of the country was completed last year by the higher education ministry with the support of USAIDinfo-icon.
