Reference Book on Services for Survivors of Violence
07 June 2019
Violence against women is one of the most persistent human rights violations in the world, stemming from a deeply rooted perception of the unequal status of women. Domestic violence violates fundamental human rights and is one of the most serious crimes against individuals. In Tajikistan, the United Nations Development Program and UN Women are supporting the implementation of the 2013 National Domestic Violence Prevention Law. UN Women builds expertise on gender issues in responsible government departments and facilitates collaboration between government and non-government actors. This collection is intended to help citizens, especially women and girls, who experience domestic violence, as well as active citizens who cannot tolerate any form of violence and are able to change the lives of women and girls. This can be done by conveying information to victims about where to go and what to do in a crisis situation for them.
