4th International Gender Conference: Sexual and gender-based violence, a social nightmare provoking action

The theme for this conference has been chosen because Sexual and Gender Based Violence is a major Public Health and Human Rights problem throughout the world. There is the call on Governments and all other Stakeholders to take concerted action and make recommendations for the Health, Education and Criminal Justice sectors of society to take the problem seriously. The organisers believe that no positive and sustainable change can occur unless the problems of Gender Equity are analysed within the framework of Public Health, Human Rights and Human Security. It is only when all aspects of society have equal rights and mutual recognition of these rights, that there can be an all encompassing and equitable development for all.
