Brief Description

The Ministry of Social Policy initiated and implemented an information campaign "Break the Circle". The goal of the campaign is to increase society's intolerance towards domestic and gender-based violence. The information campaign "Break the Circle" calls on all of society to take action and have no tolerance for violence. This campaign is supported by a UNFPA program "Integrated Approach to Addressing the Problem of Violence against Women and Girls in Ukraine", which aims to support the process of strengthening national mechanisms for preventing and responding to gender-based violence.
