Brief Description

The National Plan of Action on Gender-Based Violence 2019-2023 calls for a multi-sectoral, prioritised national effort against gender-based violence. The Plan focuses on actions that have emerged as the most urgent, the most achievable as well as likely to have the greatest impact in combating GBV, with limited resosurces. It is based on a socio-ecological model that is designed to provide a home for coordinated national action. The four action areas support either a long-term movement that targets root causes or short-term goals that will improve response systems and community safety in general to ensure that survivors and victims no longer feel unsafe or untrusting of protection structures.
