Brief Description

The second National Action Plan to Prevent Violence Against Women 2014-2018 (NAPVAW II) laid emphasis on coordination efforts with police, local authorities, communities and other stakeholders for the implementation of the 2010 Village/Commune Safety Policy Guideline, which includes actions to combat and prevent trafficking of women and children, domestic violence, and other forms of VAW. In this regard, the draft Preventing Violence Against Women and Girls: a strategy to implement prevention priorities in the NAPVAW was developed in 2017 to enhance these coordination efforts. Protocols have been reviewed to be more gender-responsive and include prevention of rape and protection of survivors.
