Electoral Gender-Based Violence is a fundamental violation of Human Rights to women’s participation in politics and elective processes. Kenya’s history of electoral violence has often resulted in sexual and other forms of gender based violence mainly targeting woman and girls. Medical support offered is minimal due to the downplaying of Gender Based Violence (GBV) in the face of real violence, insufficient information about available service points and lack of social support to encourage reporting for treatment.
It is in response to these gaps that the GOK, the National Gender and Equality Commission, NGOs and other agencies have come together to ensure that all survivors in whatever part of the country can access quality help within the shortest time possible.
