Brief Description

Zimbabwe is implementing the National Programme on Gender Based Violence (GBV) Prevention and Response 2016-2020 aimed at providing policy guidance on addressing GBV in Zimbabwe and complementing provisions of the National Anti-GBV Strategy. Campaigns, media programme and community awareness are critical strategies that the government as well as development partners continue to employ to ensure that there is more focus on norms transformation and real social behaviour change when it comes to GBV. Zimbabwe recognises the need to address the key drivers of the different forms of GBV if gender equality is to be realized and one of the strategies is engagement with men and boys.
