Campaign to end violence and injustice against women and girls living with HIV
June 14, 2021

PATA continues build the capacity of women and girls living with HIV to identify, report and prevent gender based and HIV related violence. One hundred new advocates in Lagos and Enugu are championing efforts to improve sexual and reproductive health and end all forms of violence and injustice perpetrated against women and girls. The combination of various civil society actors, the media and trained female advocates led to the passage into law of the Enugu State Violence against Persons (VAP) Bill by the Enugu State House of Assembly in April 2019. 

Advocates from support groups of young persons living with HIV (age 18-25) in seven Lagos State treatment sites received trainings on gender based violence and sexual and reproductive health and rights. The young women’s training improved their understanding of feminist values, abuse prevention and bystander interventions. Seeking redress for rights violations and addressing the mental health needs of women and girls remains an important component of the interventions.

The domestic and sexual violence and response team established by the Lagos State government to end domestic and sexual violence works in close collaboration with the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP).
