USAID Blog Publishes Posts Addressing GBV

In recognition of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender Violence, USAID’s “IMPACTblog” is highlighting the agency’s work to combat gender-based violence (GBV). In a post published Friday, Diana Santillan, a gender adviser with USAID’s Bureau for Global Health, examines the role of men and boys in changing gender norms and ending child marriage (12/6). In a second post published Friday, Laura Garnett, a program assistant for USAID’s Office of Transition Initiatives (OTI), writes, “Given the breadth and complexity of the issue, USAID’s [OTI] helps increase community education, support for prevention and response, and women’s inclusion in political processes — all critical issues that threaten both the stability and rights of citizens, such as GBV” (12/6).
