Intimate Partner Violence in Namibia

The Namibian Minster of Gender Equality and Child Welfare, the Hon. Doreen Sioka, declared in a public forum, that 150 women had been murdered in instances of IPV during 2013 and 2015. Poverty and inequality are key drivers of gender-based violence (GBV) in Namibia. Deeply-entrenched, harmful gender norms, along with high levels of alcohol consumption also contribute to the prevalence of violence in the society.
