Webinar: A 'Network Approach' to Addressing Sexual and Gender-Based Violence: Introducing the Africa Regional SGBV Network
Wednesday 4 February 2015 9:00 AM EST / 17:00 EAT
There is increasing interest in networks as a means of addressing sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), in a coherent and effective manner - particularly in East and Southern Africa. The process of fostering collaborations between organizations with common interests and goals around SGBV, creating networks among them, and having them work in tandem to tackle specific aspects of the issue, has been referred to as a 'network approach.' This webinar focuses on a network approach developed by the Population Council to respond to SGBV in low-resource settings in the East and Southern Africa region. It describes the components of the approach, its rationale, the associated results of the approach, and scale-up strategies.
