Brief Description

Acknowledging the importance of indicators to monitor the extent of GBV, a Domestic Violence Information System (DOVIS) is being set up at the Ministry of Gender Equality, Child Development and Family Welfare. The DOVIS is a web-based computer system for registration of reported cases of domestic violence and will allow for data harmonisation, easier record keeping and faster retrieval of information on domestic violence issues. It will be used as a tool to monitor and assess record, as well as generate specific reports on such cases. This complements the existing Gender Statistics periodically released by Statistics Mauritius, the official organisation responsible for collection, compilation, analysis and  dissemination of the official statistical data relating to the economic and social activities of Mauritius.
