The Health Forum on Gender Based Violence

The Health Forum on Gender Based Violence

The  Health Forum on GBV was initiated in September 2018, under the joint partnership of the Institute for Reproductive Health and Rights (IRHR), the Obstetrical and Gynecological Society of the Sudan (OGSS) and the International Representative Committee of the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynecology of the United Kingdom (IRC-RCOG).

The health Forum was initiated with the aim of providing a space for physicians to discuss the role they play in combating GBV. The forum also sought to establish links between physicians and professionals from fields such as law and psychology who work around GBV to deepen their understanding of the issues related to it.

Three forums on various GBV related topics were organized its first year before being put on hold by the 2018 Revolution. The forum then returned again in October 2019 in a new political and social climate to organize its forth forum and to launch officially into the wider community working towards combating GBV.

The Health Forum on GBV was officially launched on 18th January 2020 at Corinthia Hotel. To read more about the launch event, click here.
