NP E.V.A. joins in to the campaign ‘16 Days Against Gender-Based Violence’, which is held from November 25 to December 10 2015.
 
Target of the campaign:
 
To change the perception of violence as a daily norm for women in the EECA region.
 
Objectives of the campaign:
 
To mobilize women who are affected by HIV in the EECA region around the idea that violence is not normal and that there is no excuse for violence and that women must not accept it.
 
To motivate women and girls who are threatened or enduring violence to seek help and support.
 
To bring to the forefront the issue of gender-based violence in countries of the EECA region and improve the understanding of the connection between gender equality, HIV, and violence.
 
Violence against women is a violation of human rights. Gender-based violence affects at least 30% of women across the world. Violence is a key factor for risk of HIV-infection among women.
 
Within the campaign NP E.V.A. is: conducting a training seminar on violence against women, printing informational materials, holding an exhibition of posters and a presentationб creating a patchwork memorial.
