In Brief: Ending Violence Against Women and Girls, East and Southern Africa Regional Office

EVAW Brief

Advancing equitable and rights-based norms and standards, UN Women works with diverse partners to ensure international, regional and national commitments uphold the right to live free of violence and that commitments made are implemented and monitored to achieve their intended results. These efforts build on the significant legal and policy foundation that exists across Africa, where all countries have constitutional provisions that call for equality and non-discrimination and nearly all have ratified Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), the Convention on the Rights of the Child & the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. This brief gives an overview of our efforts to end violence against women in East and Southern Africa
