SDG 5: Gender equality

Many of the activities developed were conducted with families affected by the earthquake, particularly women and their daughters and sons - in training opportunities for the prevention of gender-based violence, helping women and their families identify common patterns of violence, as well the protection routes that they could resort to.

Displacement, over-crowed camps, lack of privacy and lighting, limited and unsegregated wash facilities increase the risks.
