Assessment of the Woman and Child Protection Services in Kavango, Karas, Khomas, Omusati & Omaheke regions in Namibia
Oct 28, 2013
Although research data on protection issues in Namibia is limited, a number of studies conducted by the Government, UN agencies and local NGOs help to identify the key concerns that require urgent attention either due to their high prevalence or due to their particularly serious nature. In addition to the issues covered in the literature, a number of serious protection issues were raised by communities, frontline service providers and other stakeholders who participated in this study. Many of these were found to be common to all five case study regions, although there was some regional variation in the emphasis given to specific concerns.
