ZAMBIA has signed a K300 million (€25 million) financing agreement with the European Union (EU) for a new programme to curb sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) in the country.

The six-year programme, which will be implemented in Northern and Luapula provinces, is aimed at preventing SGBV and ensuring that survivors of the vice access comprehensive support services.
Secretary to the Treasury Fredson Yamba said it is time to speak against negative social norms and cultures that perpetuate gender based violence (GBV).
