“Violence should be condemned everywhere. Being a physician, I adopted the strategy of fighting against VAW by adopting the medical approach, that is, highlighting the negative impact of violence on health. In places where violence is prevailing, where human rights violations occur, where laws are difficult to implement, this approach may have more listening ears. Yet having a Global Treaty on VAW is crucial, it tells the abusers of women “you are wrong, no matter what justifications you give”.”
