Joint national strategy to combat sorcery accusation related violence

Papua New Guinea’s major churches have committed to a joint national strategy to combat sorcery accusation related violence, declaring their determination to help end a practise blamed for destroying hundreds of lives and damaging dozens of communities across the country every year.

In a landmark development, the 10 main denominations have adopted the National Churches Strategic Plan to Address Sorcery Accusation Related Violence, which will ensure they speak and act as one in condemning sorcery accusation related violence and tackling its underlying causes.

The strategy’s development was led by the PNG Council of Churches and the Government of PNG, with support from the Australian Government through the #PNGAusPartnership.
