Haiti - Social : International Day for the Elimination of Gender Violence
Saturday November 25, 2023, as part of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, Swiss Cooperation is committed to the fight against gender-based violence with local and international partners working in the gender theme in Haiti.

This year, the day is commemorated under the international theme “Investing to prevent violence against women and girls” and the local theme "Prevansyon, fòmasyon ak edikasyon se zouti pou konbat vyolans sou fanm ak tifi" proposed by the Ministry for the Status of Women and Women's Rights.

Gender-based violence is the most widespread violation of human rights, Switzerland, in its international cooperation strategy 2021-2024, focuses on preventing gender-based violence and strengthening economic empowerment and women's political participation.

Saturday was also the launch day for 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, an international campaign dedicated to ending violence against women and girls.

Until December 10, KRIFA is mobilizing as usual to raise awareness and take action against this crisis. In families, offices, schools and particularly in sites for displaced people, women and young girls are increasingly suffering the consequences of this serious social problem. Our program, under the theme "Investing to prevent violence against women and girls," includes awareness-raising workshops in displaced person sites. Each of these awareness sessions is carefully designed to meet the needs of victims and their loved ones.

According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in Haiti, between January 1st and August 15, 2023, at least 2,439 people were killed (282 women and 50 children), 902 injured (230 women and 23 children) and 951 kidnappings (307 women and 12 children).
