Brief Description

The policy of setting up centres for the promotion of women's rights continued with the creation of a new law boutique in the south of the country. Thus, the number of law shops increased from four in 2017 to five in 2018. Similarly, a reception and orientation office for survivors of gender-based violence has been set up at the Departmental Centre for Assistance and Training for Women (CEDAF) in the centre-east of the country. As part of the care for victims, free legal services are offered to vulnerable groups. In this regard, four thousand seven hundred and seventy-seven  people in 2018 benefited from advice, guidance and psychological support, 85% of whom were women, compared to two thousand one hundred and fifty-seven in 2017.
