The Department of Community, Religion and Youth are holding a conference to launch the National Strategy to Prevent and Respond to Gender Based Violence.

The strategy aims to strengthen the work on GBV in order to achieve zero-tolerance towards GBV by 2025 and as per PNG Vision 2050.

The GBV Strategy was endorsed by the National Executive Council on December 15.

Minister for Community Development, Youth and Religion Delilah Gore said the strategy does not reinvent structures and processes.

The GBV strategy builds on existing interventions at national and sub-national level to secure government ownership and a stronger focus on coordination and monitoring for quality.

Gore highlighted that the endorsement is very important because this is a way forward for our country in addressing gender issues that have been affecting our families and society.

The launch will take place on Friday, March 24 starting at 9am at the Airways Hotel, in Port Moresby.

Important guest speakers are expected to attend the launch including the NCD Governor, Powes Parkop and the UNDP Country Representative, Roy Trivedy.

Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill will be doing the official Launch of the GBV Strategy.
