Brief Description

The National Domestic Violence and Sexual Abuse Protocol (2011) provides guidelines to responders in their interventions to address incidents and manage cases of Domestic and Sexual Violence. The sectors identified to form the coordinated and integrated response mechanism are the law enforcement, health care, social service, and legal service sectors as key responders to deal with domestic violence and sexual abuse. The Protocol also identifies the role of the Ombudsman in the process of holding agents of the State, as duty-bearers, accountable. In demonstrating the significance placed on this Protocol, the Ministers for each of the sectors, including the Prime Minister as Minister for National Security and Legal Affairs, publicly signed the Protocol into force on May 16, 2011.
