    The National Centre for Women Development (NCWD) in pursuit of its mandate to undertake activities geared towards the social, economic and political empowerment of women within the overall framework of national development, entered into collaborations with the UN Women to initiate a programme titled ‘Advance: Women’s Political Participation in Nigeria’ with support from the Canadian Government.

    GRAPHICAL DATA DISTRIBUTION OF GENDER BASED VIOLENCE (GBV) REPORTED IN DIFFERENT STATES FROM 2015-2020 AS CAPTURED IN NCWD GBV DASHBOARD
    Gender-based violence is prevalent globally. It occurs in many forms, including intimate partner violence, rape and coerced sex, child sexual abuse, human trafficking etc. Such forms of gender-based violence are a significant risk factor for poor health, impacting on individuals’ physical, sexual and psychological health, as well as their social and economic well-being.
    In a bid to stem the tide, the National Centre for Women Development launched a Gender Based Violence DASHBOARD, to capture reported cases of all kinds of violence against women so decision makers can access this information and develop policy to reduce this crime. A total of 1260 SGBV cases were reported from 2015-2020 >>>Access Data
