An 83-page document was officially presented to stakeholders and the media this afternoon that seeks to combat gender based violence. The 3-year action plan will see several agencies engaged in the effort with a look at areas including health and education. Speaking to Love News on this document and its contents and objectives was the Executive Director for the National Women’s Commission, Ann-Marie Williams.
Minister of Human Development, Anthony Martinez says the government is supporting this plan whole heartedly.
Williams added that public participation is pivotal as the training of officers and those engaged in the fight will never be sufficient.
The launch took place this afternoon at the Biltmore Plaza in Belize City.
