According to Lorraine Johnson from the Women’s Department, the presenters at today’s forum were from various sectors of the community who shared information on HIV stigma and discrimination and violence against women, among others.

Another event along the theme of addressing violence against women is a National Symposium on Masculinity scheduled for Wednesday at the Biltmore Hotel in Belize City.

Organizers of that event are calling on Belizean men to come together to strengthen efforts to reduce gender-based violence in Belize.
