Brief Description

The Inter-Territorial Council of the National Health System (CISNS), approved common epidemiological indicators and the definition of a “case of gender violence” as a category that facilitates the incorporation of gender violence into epidemiological monitoring. That year, the CISNS also approved the Common Quality Criteria of the national health system for the training of professionals. Since 2009, the results and analysis of the above epidemiological and training indicators have been published periodically in the Committee’s annual reports on gender violence.
