Sexual and Gender Based Violence: A Monitoring Assessment against National Strategic Framework and National Action Plan 2014-2018 of Ministry of Women’s Affairs in Cambodia

RHAC final-ICPD+25 Monitoring and Research Report, Jan 28 2018 -RS-01

This monitoring report assesses the progress that has been made with respect to those agenda items concerning gender equity and women’s empowerment in Cambodia. Violence against women and girls (VAWG) continues to be recognised as a prevalent and urgent concern in Cambodia. Thus, an evaluation of the implementation of the National Action Plan to Prevent Violence against Women (NAPVAW) 2014-2018 – which the Ministry of Women’s Affairs (MoWA) conceived in alignment with the ICPD PoA – reflects the general state of sexual and reproductive health and rights in Cambodia against the ICPD objectives. To monitor the effectiveness of NAPVAW implementation, an assessment was undertaken in July to September of 2018. The methodology was comprised of desk review of relevant government policies and focus group discussions (FGDs) and indepth interviews (IDIs) with key stakeholders, including national and sub-national government authorities, survivors of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), and clientele seeking services at the Reproductive Health Association of Cambodia (RHAC).
