The UB Post - - Domestic -

With sup­port of the United Na­tions Pop­u­la­tion Fund (UNFPA), a new one stop ser­vice cen­ter for pro­vid­ing com­pre­hen­sive care to vic­tims of gen­der-based vi­o­lence opened in Mu­run, the cap­i­tal of Khu­vs­gul Province, on Oc­to­ber 26.

Res­i­dent Rep­re­sen­ta­tive of UNFPA Mon­go­lia Naomi Ki­ta­hara said, “53.7 per­cent of women in Khu­vs­gul Province have ex­pe­ri­enced one or more types of vi­o­lence in their life­time ac­cord­ing to a gen­der-based vi­o­lence sur­vey re­port. We moved one step for­ward to pro­vide com­pre­hen­sive care to vic­tims of gen­der-based vi­o­lence.”

The province’s government of­fice will pro­vide ef­fec­tive care and sup­port to vic­tims of gen­der-based and do­mes­tic vi­o­lence, and pro­vided its bud­get and hu­man re­sources for the one stop ser­vice cen­ter.

The cen­ter will pro­vide the vic­tims with med­i­cal care, coun­sel­ing, le­gal ser­vices, and po­lice pro­tec­tion in one place to avoid re-vic­tim­iza­tion of vic­tims.
