Call to Scale Up Fight Against GBV

Minister calls on families and community-based activities to supplement government efforts in combating early marriages, teenage pregnancies and gender-based violence

Zambia’s local government and housing minister, Emmanuel Chenda, believes there is a need for concerted family and community-based activities to supplement government efforts in combating early marriages, teenage pregnancies and gender-based violence (GBV).
 
Chenda is saddened by the increase in cases of early marriages, teenage pregnancies and GBV in that country.
 
He states that, “This calls for us all to scale up efforts towards fighting early marriages, teenage pregnancies, GBV, alcohol and drug abuse through community and family-based activities,” adding that, “The fight against teenage pregnancies and early marriages would help mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS.”
