It takes place every year from 25 November (International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women) to 10 December (International Human Rights Day).
The period includes Universal Children’s Day and World AIDS Day.
We are firmly committed to leading a coordinated effort to sustain the campaign into the next decade.
Every year, government, civil-society organisations and the business sector work together to broaden the impact of the campaign.
By supporting this campaign, thousands of South Africans have also helped to increase awareness of abuse and strengthen support for victims and survivors of abuse.
