It recognizes that every form of violence including female foeticide, rape, abduction, trafficking, dowry deaths, domestic violence and witch hunting has been on the rise. The Plan envisages that during the plan period justice delivery mechanism will be strengthened. Violence against women will be articulated as a public health issue and training will be provided to medical personnel at all levels.
