FHI 360, in partnership with the U.S. Embassy in Thailand, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Asia Regional Mission in Thailand and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), will host a one-day event to explore issues of gender-based violence in Asia and the Pacific. This summit will examine gender-based violence (GBV) services across populations, discuss how to achieve the specific Sustainable Development Goal targets on GBV in Asia and the Pacific, address intersections and gaps between types of violence, and highlight the role of donors in breaking down silos. Addressing gender inequality and human rights violations as root causes of GBV establishes a common framework for examining policies, response systems and prevention programming that are applicable to a wide set of violence and rights abuses.
USAID will host a reception after the summit at 5:30 p.m. at the Conrad Hotel, Ballroom, 87 Witthayu Road, Lumphini, Pathum Wan, Bangkok.
|Please RSVP for the summit and reception by November 27, 2015.|
