National Strategic Plan on gender-based violence and femicide | South Africa

Interim Steering Committee on GBVF


The Gender-Based Violence and Femicide National Strategic Plan (GBVF NSP) sets out to provide a cohesive strategic framework to guide the national response to the hyper endemic GBVF crisis in which South Africa finds itself. Impetus for this plan arises from the bold 24 demands by cis women, trans women and gender non-conforming people across the country who marched on 1 August 2018, under the banner of #TheTotalShutdown and builds on previous initiatives by the state and civil society.
