THREE-DAYS TRAINING OF LECTURERS FROM THE THREE NURSING SCHOOLS AND THE MEDICAL SCHOOL OF THE UNIVERSITY OF THE GAMBIA ON THE CLINICAL GUIDELINES FOR THE MANAGEMENT OF GENDER BASED VIOLENCE CASES:

The Network against Gender Based Violence in its continuous efforts to build the capacity of stakeholders on gender based violence (GBV) and its consequences for effective response to GBV in The Gambia is currently organizing a three-day training program targeting lecturers and administrators from the Nursing Schools and the Medical School of the University of The Gambia.
The training is to build the capacity of the lecturers and school administrators for the incorporation of gender based violence into their school curriculum. This will ensure that all the future nurses and medical officers trained in The Gambia have some basic knowledge of gender based violence and how to manage cases of sexual, physical and emotional violence.
The training is currently taking place today Tuesday 25th August to Thursday 27th August 2015 at the Actionaid International Conference Hall, MDI Road, Kanifing.

The care team comprises of service providers from Department of Social welfare, Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital, FLAG, Shelter for Children, Serrekunda General Hospital, Ministry of Justice and the Police Gender/Child Welfare Unit. The team meets quarterly to discuss GBV cases reported to their institutions and discuss necessary follow up actions for effective response to those cases. However, in addition to the usual quarterly meeting agenda, on the 14th August 2015 the Care Team met to also review and finalize the Gender Based Violence (GBV) data base developed by the Network against GBV.
