A group of experts from THL explored the City of Windhoek school health service and visited two schools in the Katuturan area. Fidel Castro Ruz Primary School is a good example of how the school co-operates with the parents and with the whole community. The visit was organized as part of the on-going Finnish-Namibian project “Strengthening the School Health Programme in Namibia”.
The end of November/early December sees a number of international events to highlight the issue of violence against women. THL has continued to address the issue through its activities, including co-ordinating a study on violence against older women, an international study exploring intimate partner violence and alcohol, as well as the evaluation of Finland’s Action Plan to Reduce Violence Against Women.
