It is a sensitive human issue that needs to be reported with care.
The Consultative Implementation and Monitoring Council or CIMC’s Family and Sexual Violence Action Committee believes that Media plays a powerful role in shaping public discourse and has the capacity to change perceptions and shape community attitudes.
But the media however needs to provide the public with factual information hence the CIMC is hosting a workshop for media personals in PNG commencing tomorrow.
The workshop will see media personnel discuss challenges on reporting on this issues and learn how to correctly report on Gender Based Violence Sensitization.
CIMC sees the media as an important partner in achieving its objectives.
