National Plan of Action to End Violence Against Women and Children in Tanzania 2017/8-2021/2
Five-year National Plan of Action
The Five-year National Plan of Action to End Violence Against Women and Children (NPAVAWC 2017/18 – 2021/22), has been developed by consolidating eight different action plans addressing violence against women and children to create a single comprehensive, National Plan of Action to eradicate violence against women and children in the country.
Violence against women and children is a daily reality for large number of women and children. In Tanzania its prevalence is high hence addressing it, is a central development goal in its own right and key to achieving other development outcomes for women, their families, communities and the nation.
The NPA-VAWC emphasizes the actions needed for both preventing and responding to violence and recognizes that investing in violence prevention initiatives has a positive impact on inclusive growth.
