Violence against women and children is one of the most widespread human rights abuses globally. More than one in three women worldwide has experienced physical violence and one in ten girls have experienced forced intercourse or other sex acts. The draft policy guarantees support to victims for their healing and recovery, delivered in accordance with international standards and best practice. To have the greatest impact in changing cultural and social realities of violence against women and girls, we have to endorse practices such as these," said Chrissie Worme-Charles, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Social Development, Housing and Community Empowerment.
A rights-based approach includes: the right to non-discrimination, right to be treated with dignity and respect, right to privacy, right to security of the person, right to be kept informed, right to participate, right to competent service delivery and the right to lay a complaint. As a direct result, victims should be treated with empathy and sensitivity. They should be afforded privacy when making reports, providing statements or at any other point of contact; and they should have their disclosures treated with confidentiality, due regard and seriousness. The draft policy will be refined based on consultation, and then brought to Cabinet for consideration along with the Standard Operating Procedures.
