Brief Description


The NGO Naripokkho has been involved in the monitoring of state interventions to combat VAW through its work with 22 police stations and 2 medical college hospitals, and 2 special courts/tribunals (dealing with violence against women and children, and acid violence) within metropolitan Dhaka city. The NGO staff are placed within these public institutions to observe how the violence-affected victims are handled by the on duty Government staff. The positive outcome has been that both the institutions have requested and received training support for creating an enabling environment for women's access to justice and prevention of violence.
