New Lowy Institute report highlights potential of CMC


A new report on gender-based violence in PNG by the Lowy Institute, authored by journalist Jo Chandler, sheds further light on the issue of gender-based violence in PNG and praises the Lae Case Management Centre project.

It also praises the Case Management Centre, calling it “one of the most promising Australian-backed projects”.
