16 Days of Activism

Each year the Sixteen Days of Activism campaign has provided a rallying point for the governments, NGOs, CBOs and other stakeholders in the region to mount events aimed at raising awareness, influencing behaviour change and securing high level political commitment to end gender violence. The campaign takes place annually in the period between 25 November and 10 December.

Key dates include:

  • 25 November: International Day of No Violence Against Women
  • 1 December: World Aids Day;
  • 3 December: International Day for the Disabled;
  • 10 December: Human Rights Day
