Critical stakeholders whose roles are essential in addressing Domestic Violence in Ghana were engaged as part of the meeting to enable the Ministry take relevant information and consideration into developing a new policy.

The Ministry however, deemed it necessary to review the existing policy which has expired and develop a new one to guide the implementation of the Act into the near future.

Addressing stakeholders, the Deputy Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Hon. Freda Prempeh said in measuring progress, achievement and impact, there is the need to recognize the inherent challenges of the legal and normative framework of Domestic Violence over a decade of policy implementation.

Engaging with stakeholders according to the Deputy Minister is vital as it serves as an opportunity to share achievements and best practices.

The Deputy Minister asserted that violence against women and girls continues to be a barrier to gender equality in Ghana.

She called on all stakeholders
to help eliminate injustices against all persons especially women and girls in Ghana.

Hon. Freda Prempeh assured stakeholders that the Ministry through the DV Secretariat shall provide public-private partnership and multidisciplinary solutions to deal with Domestic Violence in Ghana.

The Head of the Domestic Violence Secretariat, Madam Malonin Asibi said domestic violence denies survivors of the fundamental rights and also undermines human development goals.

She went on to say that the passing of the Domestic Violence Act 2007 provided an enabling environment and necessary mandate for a more coordinated response to domestic violence in Ghana.

Madam Malonin Asibi urged stakeholders to deliberate and come out with strategies that will help eliminate domestic violence in Ghana.

On his part, the UNFPA Ghana Representative, Mr Niyi Ojuolape was pleased by the efforts of the Ministry to bring together stakeholders to deliberate on the key findings of the review of the 2009-2019 National Domestic Violence Policy and Plan of Action. This he said is timely as it serves as an opportunity to draw lessons learnt over the past 10 years and strategize on the way forward to enhance partnership and collaboration to combat domestic violence that affects mostly women, adolescent girls and children in Ghana.

He added that UNFPA is concerned about the rising incidence of violence affecting women and girls and that there is the need to improve on preventive efforts as well as effective management of cases to mitigate long term effects on the victims.

Mr. Niyi Ojuolape promised that UNFPA in partnership with government and civil society will continuously work to eliminate all forms of violence against girls, young people and women.

Dr. Nansata Yakubu consultant for the project took participants through the development of proposals for the DV policy review.

Stakeholders also used the opportunity to review achievements and challenges chalked during the past 10 years whiles deliberating on inputs to be incorporated into the new policy.

The main objective of the review is to assess the extent to which the goals, objectives and outcomes in the National Domestic Violence Policy and Plan of Action (2009-2019) were achieved.
