Brief Description

The Extraordinary National Action Plan against Sexual and Gender-Based Violence 2015-2017 established a multi-level governance framework of public policies for combating the phenomenon and supporting its victims. A systematic funding mechanism was created to sustain the work of new antiviolence centers and shelters all over the national territory and the strengthening of those already existing, through a total allocation of 10 million euros per year and, starting from 2018, of 30 million euros each year. So far, the number of shelters in Italy has increased from 163 in 2013 to 258 in 2017, as well as the number of anti-violence centers, which has grown from 188 in 2013 to 296 in 2017.
