‘COMBAT’ing violence against women: A success story from rural Ghana
The Gender Studies and Human Rights Documentation Centre (Gender Centre) in Ghana developed the Community-Based Action Teams (COMBAT) programme as a Rural Response System to prevent violence against women. The programme recruits and trains community teams, and mobilizes state and community-based structures to prevent and respond to violence against women and girls (VAWG). Four broad strategies drive the programme’s success: raising awareness about VAWG, shifting the attitudes of traditional and religious leaders and community members, improving public knowledge about women’s rights, law and support services; and increasing the capacity of community structures and state agencies to support survivors of violence. In this webinar, Dorcas Coker-Appiah and Adolphina Addo-Lartey co-present the COMBAT programme that successfully shifted knowledge, attitudes and behaviours with respect to gender roles and relations and violence against women and girls in rural Ghana. Listen directly from the practitioners on 11 February 2020, Thursday, 4.30 to 6.00 p.m. EAT | 8.30 to 10.00 a.m. EST | 7.00 to 8.30 p.m. IST
