“Combating Violence against Women in the Arab Region: Multisectoral Efforts”
“Combating Violence against Women in the Arab Region: Multisectoral Efforts” a study by ABAAD, in partnership with ESCWA, aims to provide an initial outline of the services and programmes available to women survivors of violence in ESCWA countries. It also evaluates these countries’ referral systems that protect survivors of violence and provide them with necessary services, in order to pinpoint the best intervention practices to assist stakeholders in developing and/or improving their service provision in accordance with international standards. The study splits those services and programmes into three categories: protection services, rehabilitation services, and prevention programmes. The three parts of the report cover (i) government services for victims of violence against women, (ii) non-governmental services for victims, and (iii) proposals for the development of such services.
