North & South Panel Exchange: Preventing and addressing GBV

The 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence is an international campaign that takes place annually commencing on 25 November, the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to 10 December, Human Rights Day, indicating that violence against women is the most pervasive breach of human rights worldwide.

This year, the UN WOMEN 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign theme is “Orange the World: Fund, Respond, Prevent, Collect!”. As stated in the UN Secretary-General’s report “Shared Responsibility, Global Solidarity: Responding to the socio-economic impacts of COVID-19″, everyone in society has an important role to play in ending violence against women and girls and we all must work together across sectors to address the various aspects of violence against women and girls.
