Fiji’s gender-based violence guideline
December 28, 2015
“It is the responsibility of all individuals in Fiji to fight against this cycle of violence against women and girls.”
Fiji has released a new gender-based violence guideline for comprehensive case management.
The ‘Responding to Intimate Partner Violence and Sexual Violence against Women and Girls’ guide will be used by health workers to ensure an effective and uniform approach.
This guideline is the first of its kind in the Pacific, and will reassure the community that there are steps in place to appropriately deal with domestic violence cases.
