Namibia National Plan on Gender-Based Violence (GBV) 2012 - 2016
The Plan of Action outlines actions designed to prevent GBV, to improve the implementation of laws and services aimed at victims of GBV, and to provide adequate support services for survivors. In particular, the Plan seeks to address the complex nature of GBV, encouraging stakeholders to consider the root causes of GBV and to identify areas for improvement in access to and delivery of effective and efficient services. Two issues have been singled out for special strategies appropriate to their unique nature: Trafficking in Persons and Baby-Dumping. The Plan also notes the need to pay special attention to cross-cutting strategies aimed at the protection of persons with disabilities.
