(MENAFN - Jordan News Agency) Amman, Mar. 2 (Petra) -- The Ministry of Social Development on Tuesday held a meeting to kick off the formulation of a national plan to address gender-based violence (GBV), especially violence against women.
While emphasizing Jordan's commitment to ending all forms of GBV, the ministry's secretary-general, Barq Dumour, stressed the need to draw up actionable plans and link them with a GBV strategy developed by the government.
