Gender-Based Violence and Women's Health

Gender-based violence (GBV) poses significant threats to women's health and well-being, encompassing physical, sexual, psychological, and economic harm. It includes acts such as domestic violence, sexual assault, trafficking, and harmful traditional practices like forced marriage and female genital mutilation. GBV undermines women's rights, autonomy, and physical safety, often leading to long-term physical and mental health consequences. Physical injuries resulting from GBV can range from bruises and fractures to more severe injuries requiring medical attention. Sexual violence increases the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including HIV/AIDS, unwanted pregnancies, and reproductive health complications. Psychological effects may include anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and suicidal thoughts. These mental health consequences can be long-lasting and affect a woman's ability to function socially and professionally. Preventing GBV requires a multi-faceted approach that includes legal reforms, policies to protect women's rights, community education, and changing societal norms that perpetuate violence. Empowering women economically and promoting gender equality are also essential in reducing vulnerability to GBV.
