The National Office for the Prevention of Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based Violence (Cosc) has developped a National Strategy on Domestic, Sexual and Gender-based violence in consultation with all relevant state organisations and non-governmental organizations. The strategy was approved in March 2010.
The four goals of the strategy are as follows:
- To promote a culture of prevention and recognition through increased understanding of domestic, sexual and gender-based violence;
- To deliver an effective and consistent service to those affected;
- To ensure greater effectiveness of policy and service planning;
- To ensure efficient and effective implementation of the strategy.
