This Government of Zambia-United Nations Joint Programme on Gender Based Violence (GRZ-UNJP-GBV) Phase II (2020-2022) is a multi-partner programme designed to reduce the prevalence of gender-based violence (GBV) in Zambia. The programme builds on and consolidates the gains made in the GRZ-UN Joint Programme Phase 1 (2012 - 2017). Phase 1 of this programme recorded significant results by providing support to GRZ implementation of the Anti GBV Act No.1 of 2011. The programme served to accelerate implementation of the provisions of the Act in four pillars of support: Health, Legal, Protection and Coordination. Under the health pillar, for example, significant achievements included training of over 1,000 health workers and revision of the training curriculum on clinical management of rape in addition to supporting the establishment of 4 hospital based One Stop Centres (OSCs), which culminated in 5,679 survivors of sexual violence receiving Post Exposure Prophylaxis (PEP).
