    According to the world Economic Index, Uganda has perform considerably better than other East African countries in curbing equalities differences in the Region in a survey that excludes Burundi and Rwanda. The three countries, Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania are found each in its own third of top 100 countries in the world with Uganda ranked 33, Tanzania (66) and Kenya (96) positions respectively.

    Globally, Iceland is considered as highly progressively in gender equality with the score of 85%, while in Africa, Lesotho leads the continents at 8th position.

    For Tanzania, the rankings show the country is performing worse on Health and survival, education and the participation of women in higher levels (decision making) and technical issues. But on political impowerment, in parliament and ministerial positions the performance of the country is impressing.

    Despite of showing some improvement compared to 2009 (73), Tanzania has slipped significantly compared to its 2006 (24) highest position.
