HI: Addressing violence against women and girls with disabilities in Africa

Africa, Misc., December 29 2017

The Making It Work Gender and Disability Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) has just finalized its selection of 9 good practices implemented by 7 DPOs and 2 Women’s Organizations in 6 countries: Cameroon, Kenya, Malawi, Nigeria, Rwanda and Uganda.

The good practices include successful community-based prevention of violence, national advocacy, increased access to justice and to health services, amongst others.

Selected practices respect criteria of leadership of women with disabilities, diversity and gender equity. Next step will bring the TAC members, Good Practice Holders, and Handicapped International project team to the 2nd Gender and Disability Forum in Kenya, March 2018.
