Rwandan National Policy on Gender-Based Violence
Download attachments:

Based on the UN's definition of Gender-Based Violence, the Rwandan National Policy on Gender Based-Violence illustrates the categories of GBV as economic violence, physical violence, sexual violence, and psychological violence. Therefore, gender-based violence should be seen as physical, sexual, emotional or social harm or abuse directed against a person because of his or her gender role in a given society. The policy helps counteract GBV through legislation and awareness. Through this, CARE Rwanda receives support from the government in order to uplift vulnerable women.
