In an effort to fast-track the fight against Gender Based Violence and Femicide (GBVF) in the province, the Eastern Cape Provincial government will host a two-day Gender-based violence and Femicide summit on the 19th and 20th of October 2022.
This provincial summit will feed into the Presidential Summit that will be held on the 1st and 2nd of November 2022, with the Theme: Accountability, Acceleration, and Amplification Now.
The main objective of the provincial summit is to account for what has been done since the adoption of the Presidential Summit Declaration against GBVF of 2019 and the National Strategic Plan( NSP) on GBVF.
This will include, the progress that has been made; challenges that continue to persist; and deepening and widening a multi-sectoral space through which to develop innovative solutions; identifying critical actions that need to be taken to change the status quo; and entrenching mutual accountability.
Let us work together to eliminate GBVF in our Province.
