Welcome to the Gender-Based Violence (GBV) Course, an essential step toward understanding and addressing a pervasive issue that affects individuals and societies worldwide. This comprehensive course is designed to provide you with a deep insight into the complex and multifaceted nature of gender-based violence, its root causes, and its far-reaching consequences.
