In April 2018, the government launched the first Digital Sex Crime Victims Support Center to provide one-stop comprehensive support services such as counseling, contents deletion, investigation, and legal and medical assistance for those who experienced illegal video shooting and dissemination. The Ministry of Gender Equality and Family has been monitoring the implementation of related policies and finding room for policy improvement by organizing an inter-ministerial coordination council on the eradication of digital sex crime, inviting experts from the private sector and the government.
