Gender-based violence is known to be one of the most prevalent and sadly unrecognized. The statistics on gender-based violence are shocking as one in three women will be subjected to violence during her lifetime and one in four women is physically or sexually abused during pregnancy, according to U.N. data. Violence have a negative impact on women as it can negatively affect their physical, mental, sexual and reproductive health, and may increase vulnerability to HIV.
