FRESH School Health and Nutrition (SHN) Webinar: School-related Gender-based Violence - New Global Guidance for Prevention and Response - February 2017

This webinar will explore tools and approaches for preventing, measuring, monitoring and responding to school-related gender-based violence (SRGBV), based on evidence and country experiences. 

SRGBV affects millions of children and young people, cutting across cultures, economies, peoples and practices. It constitutes a major barrier to children’s ability to learn and develop, and is correlated with lower academic achievement.

Ending school-related gender-based violence is a priority for countries wishing to achieve ambitious global goals on inclusive and quality education for all, good health and well-being and gender equality. 

Speakers: Jenelle Babb, UNESCO,

                 Julie Hanson Swanson, USAID

                 Hassan Muluusi, Raising Voices Uganda

The School Health and Nutrition webinar series provides monthly presentations by leading policy-makers, researchers and implementers engaged in improving the health and education of children in low and middle-income countries across the globe.
