Brief Description

The Ministry of Justice and Police started the project creating a standard form for registration of domestic violence in 2014 in collaboration with the United Nations Population Funds (UNFPA) and the Ministry of Home Affairs. In June 2018, approximately 50 persons were trained in the use of the registration form. The registration form has been piloted for a period of four and a half months. After several discussions, the draft form was adapted and formally approved by the Minister of Justice and Police in December 2018.
