Evidence advocacy approach has been used to influence key national initiatives including the enactment of the Sexual Offenses Act 2006, establishment of other GBV Recovery Centres and the decision by the commission of inquiry into the post election violence (Waki Commission). Courtesy of the previously used information management system, GVRC has preserved evidence and information crucial to bringing those responsible for the violent acts to justice. GVRC and partners through the evidence advocacy approach realized the repeal of section 38 of the Sexual Offences Act and the gazettement of the revised Post Rape Care Form, thus, making management and legislation for survivors effective. Currently, GVRC has been engaging in discussions and offering expert opinion in relation to passing of the PADV Bill (Protection Against Domestic Violence)
