The University Teaching Hospital -UTH- says it has continued to record many people seeking treatment at the institution due to Gender Based Violence -GBV.
UTH Spokesperson Natalie Mashikolo says more female victims are coming forward than their male counterparts.
Ms Mashikolo was speaking to ZNBC News in Lusaka today.
Today, Zambia has started the Annual Observance of the 16 days of Activism Against Gender Based Violence -GBV.
During the 16 days of activism against GBV, various stakeholders publicly display their commitment to fight the scourge.
And Ms Mashikolo has urged Non-governmental Organisations to step up efforts to sensitise members of the public against GBV.
She also urged the Church to join forces in the sensitisation against GBV.
Ms Mashikolo said GBV statistics can reduce if there is enough and consistent sensitisation on the dangers of the scourge.
