December 3, 2013 - International Medical Corps’ Pakistan team is conducting a 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence campaign in Afghan refugee villages. Awareness Walks were conducted in two camps – Baraki II and Koga. The gender-based violence (GBV) team provided information about the 16 Days Campaign and its importance to the community, and subsequently walked inside the refugee village to show their commitment to end GBV. All International Medical Corps-supported basic health units will conduct sessions on 16 Days topics in their daily health education sessions throughout the 16 day campaign.

International Medical Corps recently established Gender Support Groups in Baraki I and Baraki II Camps, comprised of 10 to 12 male and female community members. Gender Support group meetings are held on monthly basis. This month, information was provided in detail to the groups about 16 Days activism campaign. The GBV team also held a session on various topics related to the 16 Days campaign in our monthly Health Committee meetings.

In conjunction with the 16 Days Campaign, International Medical Corps marked World AIDS Day in Baraki, Mera Kachori and Koga camps with community visits and awareness sessions.
