- Stop Violence against Women
Violence is the biggest challenge facing women in the country. One woman in three has been beaten, raped, coerced into sex, or otherwise abused in her lifetime. Half of female murder victims are killed by partners or close family members.These have become the basis for a clarion call to increase efforts to decrease and bring to a halt, violence against women.

AZAPO will work to end violence against women and gender disparities.
