OUR FOCUS AREAS
Gender Based Violence (GBV)
Violence against women and girls is one of the most prevalent human rights violations in the world. It knows no social, economic or national boundaries. Worldwide, an estimated one in three women will experience physical or sexual abuse in her lifetime.
Gender-based violence (GBV) undermines the health, dignity, security and autonomy of its victims, yet it remains shrouded in a culture of silence. Victims of violence can suffer sexual and reproductive health consequences, including forced and unwanted pregnancies, unsafe abortions, traumatic fistula, sexually transmitted infections including HIV, and even death.
IFEHS is presently running a dairy section to obtain the prevalence of this hideous crime in our country. To join in the fight against GBV by sharing your story, please call +234 803 604 2326
