Domestic violence minimized through specific plans

 Accordingly, from 2010 to 2015, it is necessary to complete the legal framework for anti-IPV; improve people’s awareness of IPV and anti-IPV; build up the database on anti-IPV; realize anti-IPV models and pilot the grassroots consultancy and assistance network for IPV victims.

In the period of 2015-2020, specific moves will be taken in order to popularize anti-IPV model and expand the grassroots consultancy and assistance network for IPV victims.
The target is that, by 2020, 80% of central and local mass media have their own column on anti-IPV and domestic balance. At the time, 60% of youths and adolescents are provided with knowledge of marriage, family and IPV.
In the short term, a nationwide IPV warning network will be built by 2010 and operated at local level.
The Program also consists of a plan on training anti-IPV workers.
The program is a move to enforce the Law on Domestic Violence Prevention as well as engage ministries, agencies, social organizations, non-governmental organizations and all walks of life in the work.
