Brief Description


The National Rehabilitation Program for men perpetrators of gender based violence crimes was established under the leadership of the General-Directorate of Prison Services and Social Rehabilitation (DGSPRS) of the Ministry of Justice. Presently, 8 rehabilitation groups are underway in 5 municipalities (corresponding to approximately 120 men undergoing rehabilitation groups). In Santa Cruz, the Program has received voluntary participation requests from some men. In the justice districts where the DGSPRS does not have social professionals, partnerships with other institutions were ensured, for instance with health. The facilities are provided by the Legal Houses or the Town Hall, based on protocols.
