The 2013 annual campaign of the Institute for Human Development, “BEWARE OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE” was created and disseminated throughout the year to reinforce our activities with students and the general population.

During the year, we have taken part in prevention fairs, in public plazas, neighborhoods, schools and exhibitions.

Various materials have been created, such as 3 short resources to prevent situations that can lead to sexual violence, posters, bulletins, etc.

To reinforce the impact of the campaign, we decided to use the same motto as the central theme of ExpoVida, BEWARE of sexual violence.

IDH is making a proposal to the education authorities for a Regulation to Prevent Sexual Violence in the educational sphere in Cochabamba, in coordination with the Public Advocate’s Office for Children and Adolescents, which lays out the obligations of teachers and directors when sexual violence is suspected. It also describes in a simple way the steps for making complaints to the services responsible, such as the Public Advocate’s Office for Children and Adolescents.




La campaña anual 2013 del Instituto para el Desarrollo Humano, “OJO CON LA VIOLENCIA SEXUAL”, ha sido creada y difundida durante todo el año para reforzar las actividades que tuvimos con la población general y los estudiantes.

A lo largo del año, hemos sido presentes en las ferias de prevención, en las plazas, en los barrios, los colegios, las exposiciones.

Varios materiales han sido creados, como 3 cortos metrajes para prevenir las situaciones que pueden llevar a la violencia sexual, afiches, boletines, etc.

Para reforzar el impacto de la campaña, hemos decidido utilizar el mismo lema como tema central de la ExpoVida, OJO con la violencia.

El IDH está proponiendo a las autoridades educativas un Reglamento para Prevenir la Violencia Sexual desde el ámbito educativo en Cochabamba, en coordinación con la Defensoría de la Niñez y Adolescencia, en el cuál están descritas las obligaciones de los Directores de colegio y de los profesores cuando existe sospecha de violencia sexual. También se describe de manera sencilla los pasos para hacer denuncias hacia los servicios responsables, como la Defensoría de la Niñez y Adolescencia.
