The assessment must provide an overview of the relevant legal authorities and executive regulations guiding the work of the NCCPIM&TIP, the NPC, the National Council for Women, and the National Council for Childhood and Motherhood and recent legislative changes; and assess how USAID can best support the overall GOE goals to address these human rights issues USAID will use findings to develop its new interventions to combat TIP in Egypt in support of existing GOE efforts.
