Integrated Programme of Action: Addressing Violence Against Women and Children

The Department of Social Development has recently published the South African Integrated Programme of Action: Addressing Violence Against Women and Children (2013-2018) on its website. The document itself has a publication date of August 2014 – although it was not in the public domain at that time – and outlines “comprehensive, multisectoral and long-term strategic interventions, emphasising government accountability, for ending violence”.

There is still no National Strategic Plan to address gender based violence – a plan that civil society has been calling for.
