Malawi hailed for efforts to end gender based violence


The NGO Gender Coordination Network (NGO-GCN) says it is happy with the way Malawi has managed to reduce cases of gender based violence.

This is coming at a time when the country is expected to commemorate 16 days of activism starting on 25 November.

Emma kaliya : We need change.

Executive Director for Gender Coordination network Emma Kaliya said people are now reporting cases of gender based violence at Victim Support Units and people are also working with non-governmental organisations to end the violence.

“Malawi has done better when it comes to ending gender based violence as most people are now able to report gender based violence,” said Kaliya.

But she claimed that there is still more that has to be done as Malawi is commemorating this year’s 16 days of activism as other people are still facing gender based violence.

According to Kaliya, proper strategies must be followed to make sure that gender based violence is dealt with once and for all so that there should be must sanity everywhere.

She also called for the need to keep creating awareness in places where people do not know about gender based violence.
