UNFPA, NCW hold the first virtual training of trainers

As UNFPA continues to adapt to the restrictions imposed by COVID-19, the first virtual training of trainers for medical service providers on Gender-Based Violence (GBV) case management was held on February 21 in cooperation with the National Council for Women (NCW) and through the support of Aspire Training Solutions.

Fourteen doctors from Qasr Al-Ainy, Ain Shams, Benha and Kafr El-Sheikh, as well as members of the Anti-Violence against Women Coordination Unit at NCW attended the training, which was supported by the Royal Norweigan Embassy.

UNFPA aims at achieving the three transformative results; zero preventable maternal death, zero unmet need for family planning and zero gender-based violence and harmful practices.

In light of this, through the GBV Coordination Unit established by UNFPA at the NCW, UNFPA had carried out capacity building workshops on international and national guidelines to address violence against women cases for criminal justice practitioners (including public prosecutors and judges), medical service providers and forensic doctors from the National Forensic Authority.
