UNFPA Engagement in Ending Gender-based Violence
Resource date: Mar 2017
Gender-based violence (GBV) is one of the most pervasive, under-reported and unaddressed human rights violations in the world. It knows no social, economic or national boundaries. UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, is working to prevent and respond to gender-based violence in 135 countries or territories worldwide, among them 43 crisis-affected countries experiencing conflict or natural disasters.
