Sexual and Gender Based Violence

Sexual & Gender Based Violence

Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) is a pervasive issue that encompasses a range of violent and abusive behaviours based on an individual's gender or sex. It includes physical, sexual, psychological, and economic violence, and can occur in various settings. While SGBV affects people of all genders and ages, women and girls are disproportionately impacted by this form of violence.
Addressing SGBV requires a multi-faceted approach that involves raising awareness about the issue, promoting gender equality, providing support services for survivors, and ensuring accountability for perpetrators. This approach necessitates collaboration between government institutions, civil society organizations, communities, and individuals.

Raising awareness is crucial in challenging societal norms and attitudes that perpetuate SGBV. By educating communities and individuals about the consequences and impact of SGBV, we can foster a culture of respect and equality.
