Women affected by Gender-Based Violence

Eliminate gender-based violence (GBV)

ACCESS works in partnership with the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) to support the implementation of the National Action Plan to Prevent Violence Against Women (NAPVAW). ACCESS will contribute to the following outcomes:

Women affected by GBV

  • Have access to quality health care, including first line support, care of injuries and urgent medical treatment and forensic examinations.
  • Have access to survivor-centred legal protection, including accountability for perpetrators.
  • Have access to other coordinated social services, including crisis information, safe shelter, psycho-social support and material aid.

To improve the coverage, quality and inclusiveness of services for women affected by violence, ACCESS will focus on two strategic areas:

  1. Improvement of multi-sectoral GBV referral and coordination networks at national and sub-national level.
  2. Adoption and operationalisation of essential service standards for women affected by GBV.

ACCESS interventions will align with priorities of the NAPVAW.

During the inception phase, ACCESS worked with the Ministry of Women’s Affairs (MOWA) counterparts to define areas of priority for the program.
