On 24th December 2022, In partnering with the African Youth and Adolescents Network (AfriYAN) Rwanda, Medical Doctors For Choice(MDFC) organized two days of training for young Medical Professionals ( doctors) on GBV prevention and response in December 2022.

The training provided young medical professionals with essential knowledge and skills on gender equality, GBV in all its forms, and how they can be prevented and responded to within society and in the clinical environment. 

As young medical professionals, they should speak up, take a stand, be at the forefront of the battle against GBV, and also take big and small actions to advance Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights information among Adolescents as they are the backbone of the country.

During the training, MDFC also conducted participative sessions on important digital platforms that exist to advance access to SRHR information in Rwanda. 

Furthermore, the participants discussed approaches to engaging men and boys in promoting gender equality and preventing GBV, and approaches to supporting victims of GBV during healthcare services delivery and in society.

The training contributed to building the next generation of young leaders from various categories in Rwanda with gender knowledge and skills to support the national effort to engage youth in gender promotion, women’s empowerment, and GBV prevention and response.
