Gender-based violence (GBV) remains a widespread issue that affects, mostly women worldwide. In South Sudan, many of the cases go unreported either the victims don’t know how to report them to the relevant authorities or because there are no reporting centers.

It is critical to recognize that reporting on GBV is not only a responsibility but also a powerful tool for raising awareness, advocating for change, and supporting survivors.

There are so many forms of GBV in the country, therefore reporting the cases requires sensitivity, compassion, and an understanding of the complex dynamics surrounding the cases.

To achieve this, there is a need to carry out massive awareness in the rural areas where the cases seem to be rampant and unreported so that these women who are mostly affected report them to the authorities.

Such awareness requires collaboration between the Ministry of Gender, Child and Social Welfare and other stakeholders including media organizations, Non-Governmental Organizations, The United Nations, and local community-based organizations.

By equipping women with the necessary skills and knowledge and opening up reporting centers, we can empower them to tackle this issue while promoting a more inclusive environment.

Together, we can create a world where gender-based violence is no longer tolerated, and survivors are given the justice and support they deserve.
