National Taskforce to End VAW Meetings
- Progress Completed
To supplement work that began in 2012 by the Ministry of Social Affairs in partnership with ABAAD and the IMC, the “National Technical Working Group for EVAW” launched its 2013 coordination meetings which were attended by representatives of concerned ministries, UN agencies, and international and local NGOs. The group’s most important achievements for the year 2012 were the production of unified medical tools to monitor and document GBV cases, the development of national standards for counselling rooms for female survivors of GBV, at MoSA SDCs and MoPH PHCs, and the production of a national training manual on unifying management skills related to GBV cases. The national priorities for 2013 to be included in the framework of the taskforce were set, and a committee of experts was appointed to review and finalise the first draft of the training manual, which will subsequently be adopted as the official training program on the national level.
