Brief Description

With support from UN Women, the Inter-Agency Commission developed a national communication strategy and action plan on violence against women and domestic violence, which specifies details about the awareness activities to be carried out during the period from 2018 to 2020. The communication strategy aims at consolidating resources and improving joint planning and coordination to ensure that government’s awareness raising interventions are evidence based, targeted and address root and structural causes of violence. The strategy is informed by the findings of the Nation-Wide Survey on Violence against Women. The initiative responds directly to the commitments undertaken by the Government of Georgia under the Istanbul Convention, which amongst others, places the responsibility on the Government of Georgia to regularly promote and conduct awareness-raising campaigns and programmes to increase awareness and understanding among the general public on all forms of violence against women and girls, including domestic violence.
