GL has conducted Violence Against Women Baseline studies in six SADC countries (Botswana, Mauritius, four provinces of South Africa, four districts of Zambia, Lesotho and Zimbabwe) and is currently rolling it out at national level in Zambia

Lifetime prevalence rates of GBV range from 25% (Mauritius) to 89% in the four districts of Zambia: Kitwe, Mansa, Kasama and Mazabuka.

Strong legislative frameworks exist in most countries but challenges remain around implementing laws and policies effectively.
