It covers 7 areas, from prevention, support to victims of violence, the psychosocial treatment of perpetrators of domestic violence, the improvement of cross-sectoral cooperation, to training experts on protection against domestic violence, and raising public awareness of the problem of domestic violence. Each National Strategy measure is based on one or more articles of the Istanbul Convention, providing it with added value. The Ministry of Demography, Family, Youth and Social Policy coordinates the implementation of the measures stipulated by both documents.
