Essential Services Package for Women and Girls Subject to Violence

19.10.2020 / Created by (EMWF)

Within the framework of The United Nations Joint Global Programme onEssential Services for Women and Girls Subject to Violence, the Essential Services Package is a guidance tool that reflects the vital components of coordinated multi-sectoral responses forwomen and girls subject to violence. The provision, coordination and governance of essential health, police, justice and social services can significantly mitigate the consequences that violence has on the well-being, health and safety of women and girls’ lives, assist in the recovery and empowerment of women, and stop violence from reoccurring. Essential services can diminish the losses experienced by women, families and communities in terms of productivity, school achievement, public policies and budgets, and help break the recurrent cycle of violence. The Essential Service Package also plays a key role in poverty reduction and development and efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
