Brief Description

The current national strategy on sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) is contained in the Phase III of the Gender-Based Violence National Action Plan (GBV-NAP) 2018- 2023. It is the revised and modified version of previous Phase II implemented from 2011 to 2016 and summaries the intervening concept points towards the prevention and management of GBV in Liberia. This instrument is in direct response to SGBV across Liberia, building on the successes, improving on the pitfalls and incorporating emerging issues stemming from the implementation in the previous phase. As such, this new phase of the NAP merged GBV interventions into three critical pillars: (1) Psychosocial & Coordination Pillar; (2) Legal & Protection Pillar (which includes a specific output on witness protection); and (3) Health Pillar.
