LIBERIA: Swedish Government Pledges to Help End Sexual Violence

The News reported on 8 February that the Swedish government, through the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA), has promised to continue its assistance in the battle to end sexual and gender-based violence. The promise was made when a Swedish delegation visited the Star of the Sea Health Center in West Point where the government of Liberia and the United Nations, under the Joint Programme on Sexual and Gender-based Violence, has established a “one-stop-shop” centre for sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) survivors. The report quotes UNFPA Resident Representative Esperance Fundira as saying the Centre was established to facilitate the provision of comprehensive services and minimize the constraints and stigma survivors are faced with in seeking redress.
