Campaign to end gender-based violence in South Sudan

16 May 2016

Weak law enforcement institutions and some traditional cultural practices hinder victims of gender-based violence in South Sudan from reporting these incidents to the authorities.

That’s according to the UN mission in the country, UNMISS, which has launched a campaign targeting women in four camps for internally displaced people (IDPs).

Leda Limann heads the UNMISS field office in Warrap State which is behind the campaign.

She talks to David Lukan about the scope of the challenge.
