Reply To: Reflect and discuss: Why prevention in Mercy’s story


    prevention is about averting before the problem actually occurs. in the story the water was tested and found to have bacteria. the people had to change their behaviors to avoid contamination of their water. this helped avert the diseases.
    in the context of preventing VAW prevention will prevent more people from being affected and also reduce the cost of dealing with already affected people . also reduces the consequences of violence early which can be lifelong.
