Ms Lungu said a healthy family free from all forms of violence is cardinal in enhancing social and economic development of the country.
She called on men to take a leading role in ensuring that families stay in peace and inspire their children to embrace peaceful living conditions.

The evaluation meeting which attracted over 50 couples was held under the theme “Men taking the lead in ending violence against women and girls”:
And Ms Lungu urged men to take the Good Husband Campaign seriously as it is cardinal in reversing the escalating cases of gender based violence in the country.
