Strengthening the IACVAWC in Responding to VAWC Complaints

This Re-Entry Project aims to address the inadequacy of the IACVAWC to proactively respond to VAWC-related complaints according to the IRR of RA 9262.
Proposed interventions will address the gap in three ways: 1) by enforcing the directing function of the member-agencies as part of their commitments inthe IACVAWC; 2) by enabling the Council to act on VAWC complaints and enforcing this role through a resolution; and 3) by increasing the awarenessof the general public on VAWC, remedies under the law and that VAWC complaints can be elevated to the Council for their action.
The ReP aims to contribute to the "full implementation of RA 9262 and RA 9710 to protect and promote the rights of women as vulnerable groups" and address the MCW provision of "enhanced policies, programs, facilities and services to ensure protection of women against all forms of violence" towards the prevention and elimination of all forms of violence against women and girls.
