Grange launches National Strategic Action Plan to eliminate gender-based violence
Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, Olivia Grange, today launched the National Strategic Action Plan to Eliminate Gender-Based Violence (NSAP-GBV). The 10-year plan sets out a programme to be implemented across government, and with specific targets towards eliminating the crime.
Grange said the plan “takes into account the socio-cultural background, specific needs of the victims, survivors and witnesses of violence and the human and financial resources available to ensure sustainability.”
The NSAP-GBV focuses on five strategic priority areas: prevention, protection, intervention, legal procedures and protocols for data-collection.
