Preventing and protecting in response of gender-based violence (GBV) in Vietnam.
The key figures of the Gender-Based Violence in Vietnam In Vietnam, 58 % of ever-married women have already experienced violence from their partner during their life whether it was physical, sexual or emotional. Despite the development of national policies aiming at eradicate gender-based violence and promoting gender equality, the results obtained on the ground remain insufficient.
Deeply influenced by Confucianism that induces a gender hierarchy, the Vietnamese society is patriarchal. Traditional gender norms are deeply rooted within the relations between men and women. This gender hierarchy normalises the phenomenon of violence and encourages stigma against victims.
The project aims at preventing and protecting in response of gender-based violence (GBV) in Hô-Chi-Minh-Ville and Hanoï in Vietnam through 4 strategic components : the promotion of the involvement of the Vietnamese youth on gender-related issues and especially GBV, the reinforcement of preexisting victim support mechanisms, the promotion of gender equality and education on the issue of violence, strenghtening civil society through mutual reinforcement of the four partner organizations.
