Brief Description


The operationalization of a network of Centers for provision of services to victims of violence is envisaged within the framework of the "XXI century without violence against women" project in 2009. The network of Centers will be piloted within the project in accordance with existing national programmes and policies in the areas of strengthening health, education, and the social protection environment in the country. Operationalization of the Centers in Ganja, Shuvelyan (Baku) and Goranboy has been determined in compliance with existing data on gender-based violence cases in these particular regions of Azerbaijan. 

The Capacity Building Component of the project will include:

  • development of training curriculum for service providers;
  • conduct of training sessions; and
  • establishment of a strong cooperation mechanism with gender focal points in state bodies and executive power structures. 

This component of the project aims to build the capacity of service providers through improving their management skills, providing technical support, and strengthening the existing institutional structure in the pilot regions.
