Huffington Post: Violence Against Women, Gender Inequality, and Histories of Conflict in Timor-Leste

June 6, 2016 — Huffington Post interviews The Asia Foundation’s Country Representative in Timor-Leste on the Foundation’s Understanding Violence against and Women Children in Timor-Leste: Findings from the Nabilan Baseline Study:

To us, this research was crucial as part of our larger program aimed at ending violence against women and children in Timor-Leste (Nabilan). The Nabilan Health and Life Experiences Baseline Study is very important, as it offers new insights into this issue and into the immense implications of violence on women’s health and wellbeing, as well as that of their children, their families, and their communities. We will use this study to influence our own work, but also as tool to advocate with civil society and the government to support work to end violence against women and children.
