COMINSUD Community Health Workers Drill Women and Girls on GBV



A sensitization campaign on Gender Based Violence organized by Community mobilizers of COMINSUD has taken place in Wum subdivision, Menchum Division of the Northwest region.


One of the key speakers Mme Elizabeth, a community health worker in Wum spoke elaborately on the consequences of GBV especially to women and girls.

As more and more women and girls are victims of battering, torture and psychological trauma. To her, the greatest problem faced by young girls is their dress code in public places that further instigate the idea of sexual intercourse from the opposite sex.



It was a sensitization meeting by extension workers of COMINSUD in Menchum Division to create awareness on referral pathway to victims of RAPE and GBV in Wum.

The session coordinated by Rev Ambe Neba Jevas as focal person for Menchum, brought together students, teachers, traditional and religious leaders in Wum.

In the days or weeks ahead, the team will move into the various villages and denominations to create awareness on referral pathway for victims of GBV.
