Video: Webinar Snapshot on gender-based violence in Cameroon  

Stories | November 9, 2022

Women with disabilities are more likely to experience violence than women without a disability and are less likely to disclose incidents of sexual violence and domestic abuse.

Recently, CBM Australia, alongside staff from the Cameroon Baptist Convention Health Services and two women with disabilities from a local Organisation of People with Disabilities, held a webinar discussing why women with disabilities do not report incidents of gender-based violence in Cameroon.

The presentation drew on the findings from research the Cameroon Baptist Convention Health Services undertook, with support from CBM Australia, to understand better the barriers preventing women with disabilities in Cameroon from disclosing incidents of sexual violence and domestic abuse. 

Over 80 people from 15 countries attended the webinar. 

Watch the Webinar Snapshot on gender-based violence in Cameroon below.

CBM acknowledges the support of the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP) and thanks our partner, the Cameroon Baptist Convention.
