Invitation to Stakeholder Consultations on the Gender Based Violence and Femicide Draft National Strategic Framework

9 September 2019

The escalating number of Gender-Based Violence and Femicide (GBVF) cases in South Africa has prompted a call to action which was led by #TheTotalShutdown. The Presidential Gender- Based Violence and Femicide Summit sat on the 2nd November 2018 and produced a Declaration which entailed deliverables that must be taken forward and be implemented in dealing with the crisis of GBVF.

An Interim Steering Committee was formed as per article 3 of the Declaration, with the mandate to draft a National Strategic Plan Framework and establish a Multi – Sector GBVF Council, which will be the Coordinating body that will champion the National GBVF work.

The Draft National Strategic Plan is currently being with Provincial Consultations taking place since August 2019.  The schedule for the month of September is as follows:
