GENDER BASED VIOLENCE (GBV) ACTION PLAN
Gender Based Violence (GBV): - Gender-based violence (GBV) is an umbrella term for any harmful act that is perpetrated against a person’s will and that is based on socially ascribed (i.e., gender) differences between males and females. GBV broadly encompasses physical, sexual, economic, psychological/emotional abuse/violence including threats and coercion, and harmful practices occurring between individuals, within families and in the community, at large. These include sexual violence, domestic or intimate partner violence (IPV), trafficking, forced and/or early marriage, and other traditional practices that cause harm. GBV has a greater impact on women and girls, as they are most of often the survivors and suffer of great physical damage than men when victimized (WHO 2005).
