Fifty-four police officers in Somalia’s South West state have been trained to tackle sexual and gender-based violence as well as conflict-related sexual violence.

They took part in a three-day workshop this week in the state capital, Baidoa, organized by the UN Mission in the country, UNSOM, together with the state’s Ministry of Women and Human Rights.
