With the increasing cost of living and heightened political activities, we need to be cautious over potential rise in Gender Based Violence. 1 in 3 women and girls experience violence in their lifetime. We can all do our part to stop #GBV

Sexual violence is a violation of human rights and a crime under international humanitarian law. It should never be ignored, excused or downplayed. In fact, it should not happen at all. #ENDViolenceNow #ThisIsNotNormal

FGM and child marriage violates women's/girls' sexual and reproductive health and rights. Accelerating the abandonment of FGM/child marriage is critical to achieving gender equality and empowering women/girls to establish an inclusive, thriving, and peaceful society. @UNICEFKenya

Only 57% of women are able to make their own decisions over their SRH.Erosion of bodily autonomy & agency leads to unintended pregnancies. Doubling efforts to address unintended pregnancies yields significant development benefits. @UNFPAKen @dienekeita #UNFPAYAPKe #1vision3zeros
