Gender Based Violence

In recent years, KDHW has initiated a Gender Based Violence (GBV) program to train Health Workers and Traditional Birth Attendants to provide support to individuals who have experienced violence due either to the ongoing military conflict or to domestic violence.

GBV can be sexual, emotional and social violence. Causes include power and control issues, cultural and social attitudes about men and women, and learned behavior.  Contributing factors include war, poverty and alcoholism.
