MONROVIA, LIBERIA –The United States Embassy is commending the efforts of the Weah-led administration for putting forth a well-considered Road map to end Sexual and Gender-based Violence in Liberia.
The Road map put in place by the administration of President Weah includes a comprehensive prevention strategy and commitment to funding various Ministries to support the strategy.
The US Embassy in a release said taking practical actions such as establishing a Sexual and Gender-based Violence Call Center and providing resources for survivors’ support demonstrate the Liberian Government’s determination to combat the menace.
It also called on government to target resources to survivors, take a strong stand against female genital mutilation and ensure swift and transparent prosecution.
The United States Embassy however said ending SGBV requires active, persistent and unified leadership from policymakers, health practitioners, community and faith-based groups, law enforcement and civil society.
