Communication vital to stop GBV


POSITIVE communication in the household is important to prevent gender-based violence (GBV), an from Care International official says.
PNG assistant country director Blossum Gilmour said yesterday during the Care PNG El Nino emergency response wrap-up symposium that the root of most GBV cases was a lack of proper communication.
“We did a radio programme recently which was specifically on the coffee industry that involved a drama that tried to encourage positive communication in the household around finances and the use of resources in the household.”
She said their development programmes had some component where they try to prevent GBV and the importance of women’s health and so they did a lot of work with community leaders to raise awareness.
