    It is estimated that one in three women suffer some form of gender-based violence (GBV) in their lifetime. LGBTQIA+ people are also especially vulnerable to sexual and GBV.  Apart from physical and emotional harm, such violence has sexual and reproductive health consequences, including unwanted pregnancies, unsafe abortions, sexually transmitted infections including HIV. Laws and policies to prevent violence abound but putting them into practice takes determination, courage, time and energy. How do we build solidarity to end the scourge?
