Tunisie : Assistant(e) Coordination Générale (h/f/x) CONTEXTE Médecins du Monde est une ONG internationale de développement médical faisant partie d'un réseau international. Nous fournissons une assistance médicale aux groupes vulnérables, en Belgique et dans le reste du monde. Nous voulons une couverture universelle de santé où chaque personne a accès aux soins, sans obstacles (financiers, culturels, géographiques, etc.). En Belgique et dans le monde, nos projets se destinent à toutes les personnes qui n'ont pas ou plus d'accès aux soins de santé.

Consultant/Facilitator “Strengthening capacity of women Vendors on leadership, political awareness and bodily integrity”

Consultant/Facilitator “Strengthening capacity of women Vendors on leadership, political awareness and bodily integrity” Justification for the training. Women’s self-defense training particularly has been excluded from sexual violence prevention efforts by many agencies for a variety of reasons, including concerns that it is ineffective, encourages victim blaming, neglects acquaintance assault, and does not target the underlying factors that facilitate sexual violence. SIHA however argue that these critiques are misguided, founded on (1) misunderstandings of self-defense training, (2) stereotypes about gender, and (3) individualistic assumptions about the impact of self-defense. Empowerment-based self-defense training helps to change the root conditions that allow violence against women to flourish. For all these reasons, and because recent research has built a case for its effectiveness, SIHA thus argue that women’s empowerment-based self-defense training should be part of any sexual violence prevention effort. It’s against this argument that SIHA intends to create a platform and opportunities for inspiration of women to join leadership positions at all levels and as well have defensive mechanism against perpetuators of assault and gender based violence.
