CARICOM’s Secretary General Dr. Carla Barnett is calling on the region to make the appropriate investments in the prevention of violence against women and girls.

In her statement to mark CARICOM’s 16 days of activism against Gender-Based violence campaign, Dr. Barnett said that resources should be put towards the empowerment of vulnerable groups through access to education and quality healthcare services.

CARICOM’s Secretary General said that the campaign incorporates four important observances, namely the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, Human Rights Defenders’ Day on November 29, World AIDS Day on December 1 and Human Rights Day on 10 December.

She said these observances highlight that violence prevents women and girls from enjoying the full complement of their human rights.
