Gender-Based Violence (GBV) is a human rights issue

Australia is strongly committed to promoting women and girls’ safety, growth and well-being. We have extended our close partnership with Ministry of Women’s Affairs through the implementation of the Australia-Cambodia Cooperation for Equitable Sustainable Services (ACCESS) Program, which aims to improve the sustainability, quality and inclusiveness of services for women affected by GBV in Cambodia.
Not just in Cambodia but also around the globe, Women and Girls are impacted by violence that prevents them from claiming basic human rights such as access to education, economic opportunities, political rights and health rights amongst others.
We urge government bodies, civil society and the private sector to promote equal rights and invest in the development of women and girls, allowing them to reach their full potential.
