As cases of sexual and gender based violence continues to take the front burner of discussions, especially following persistence in cases of violence against women and girls, the Oyo State Sexual and Gender Based Violence Response Team (Oyo SGBVRT), has emphasised the need for effective data collation for the fight against violence to be effective. We cannot continue to have data that is not up to date or duplicated across agencies to increase figures. The team further agreed that without data, it will be difficult to prosecute offenders, help victims and adequately sensitise the public. It will also help us to monitor improvement or lack of it in what we do,” the team said. Oyo SGBVRT canvassed for the establishment of a data collection and analysis system that every partner can access.
