16 Days of Activism Against Violence Against Women - Information Packet Posted by Picasa

This information packet was produced as part of the activities carried out in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) by different organizations — in a collaborative effort — for the 2005 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence. The theme of the 2005 campaign is "For the Health of Women, for the Health of the World: No More Violence." It shows the connection between violence and women's vulnerabilities to HIV/AIDS. The kit consists of documents that highlight the campaign theme, including facts and suggested actions for governments, parliamentarians, NGOs and the media.

The campaign in LAC was initiated by UNIFEM in partnership with other UN agencies — UNICEF, PAHO, UNFPA, UNDP, INSTRAW — and other organizations, including the Inter-American Commission on Women, the Center for Women's Global Leadership, the Inter-American Parliamentarian Group on Population and Development, and the Inter-American Alliance for the Prevention of Gender-Based Violence from a Health Perspective. ISIS International — a Chilean-based NGO that focuses its work on violence against women — is disseminating the kits throughout the region.
