16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence

The 2023 UNiTE campaign theme is Invest to Prevent Violence Against Women & Girls (VAWG) and will focus on the importance of financing different prevention strategies to stop violence from occurring in the first place. This year, the MCO in the Caribbean is calling on all governments in the region to allocate national budget to prevent violence against women and girls, including through their own national action plans and prevention across education, health, and social protection sectors by incorporating VAWG prevention. No matter who you are in the society, we call on you to be AN ALLY in preventing VAWG by taking a stand publicly, engaging in activities and events to raise awareness of VAWG in their communities.
