Brief Description


Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for the Gender Based Violence (GBV) Unit and Ministry of Social Development were approved and implemented in 2013. This will systematize responses to GBV within the Ministry. An intervention program on sexual violence, “Sexual Assault Response Guide”, was approved and staff were trained for testing and implementation. An empowerment program for domestic violence survivors, “Programme for Women’s Empowerment and Resilience,” has been reviewed and is ready for piloting. SOP for the health sector are being finalized and, upon implementation, this will act as the guide for health care responses to GBV.
