Publication description. The goal was to ensure that women and girls facing domestic violence receive good support services through rights-based and gender-responsive implementation of the Domestic Violence Victims Act (DV Act). The programme contributed to two outcomes: (1) improvement of multi-sectoral coordination amongst the DV Act implementing partners; and (2) increased capacity of those involved in multi-sectoral coordination to provide well-coordinated, rights-based and gender-sensitive protection and support services in the implementation of the DV Act.
Main findings of the evaluation:
- increased national awareness of the importance of the DV Act;
- responded to the need to support key aspects of implementing the DV Act and involved most, if not all, of the relevant national government stakeholders associated with the Act;
- efficiently identified and mobilized high quality expertise across its various activities at relatively low cost; and
- had a strong track record of implementing various training and awareness raising activities, which left a strong and favourable impression on participants, even years later.
