Brief Description

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the Ministry of Health (MoH) and Respect Educate Nurture and Empower Women (RENEW; a Civil Society Organization (CSO) dedicated to the empowerment of women and girls with special focus on the survivors of gender based violence) to strengthen coordination and collaboration between the Multi-Sectoral Task Force (MSTF) and Community Based Support System (CBSS) and identify common approaches to addressing social issues, particularly GBV at the local level. This MoU resulted in forging stronger collaboration between the government and CSO thereby increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of interventions. An assessment is also being carried out on improving the coordination mechanism between the government and CSOs to strengthen the protection services provided for women and children in need of care and support.
