Brief Description

The Domestic Violence Information System (DOVIS) is a computerised system for the registration and management of cases of domestic violence in Mauritius. It provides a multi-user platform for performing different functions simultaneously and provides a better coordination among the Family Support Bureau (FSBx). The DOVIS was operational in May 2016 on a pilot basis in three FSBx, and was officially launched on November 2016 in the context of International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (IDEVAW). By 2019, the DOVIS is expected to be fully operational in all the FSBx in Mauritius. It enables fast and easy retrieval of information for easy management and tracking of cases of domestic violence.
