Enabel is actively working to contribute to end Gender-Based Violence in seven districts of Rwanda through "Barame" health project focusing on maternal, neonatal, child, adolescent, sexual and reproductive health.
The objective is to offer quality services and management to victims of GBV at the right place and at the right time.
To achieve this, the project is training medical staff, renovating "Isange" One Stop Centers (IOSC) and providing relevant medical equipment.
So far, 43 staff of IOSCs and 81 other staff from hospitals including medical doctors, nurses, midwives, social workers and psychologists have been trained on gender-based violence case management.
In addition, 6 IOSCs have been renovated and medical equipment (such as ultrasounds) has been provided.
Moreover, to offer services closer to the population, the project works on the extension of GBV services at health center level, as recommended by the 4th Health Sector Strategic Plan.
Up to now, 235 staff of health centers have been trained on GBV case management, including community and environmental health officers, nurses, social workers and mental health professional.
