Brief Description

One of the strategies applied by the Government of Kenya to change attitudes on violence against women was the establishment of a National Gender Based Violence (GBV) Technical Working Group and has been escalated in 25 counties. The groups consist of state and non-state actors and convene on monthly and quarterly basis. This is a platform that strengthens collaboration and partnership on addressing SGBV.
