WHO: 200 professionals ready to provide support to victims of domestic violence
UNDP: Documentary on economic empowerment opportunities for victims of violence During the past two months, UNDP in cooperation with Skopje Film Studio and one of the most famous movie directors in the country, Igor Ivanov-Izi, shot a documentary that raises awareness on domestic violence and informs about the economic empowerment opportunities offered by the Programme. The documentary is intended primarily for Roma women, who, in the past have had a very low participation in the economic empowerment programmes. The film will be finalised by the end of November, after which it will be presented on national and local TV stations and through a series of roundtable discussions in Roma communities (15 November 2011).
UNFPA: Public Awareness Campaign Launched For the third year in a row, on 19 October 2011 the Programme launched a nation-wide public awareness campaign against domestic violence. The campaign, under the motto "Let’s step out of the darkness of violence together!" sends a powerful message to remind us that we all have the power and the ability to put an end to domestic violence. Everyone can make an impact. Everyone can contribute and act responsively: change behavior, share the message, encourage, advise, report. Throughout the years, the campaigns against domestic violence have encouraged hundreds of women to stand against domestic violence, report it and ask for help (15 November 2011).

About

Overview

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), and the World Health Organisation (WHO) have established a Joint Programme in the Former Yugoslav Republic of (FYR) Macedonia entitled "Strengthening National Capacities to Prevent Domestic Violence (SNC PDV),” using a pass-through funding modality. The overarching goal of this Joint Programme is to support and mobilize the government and the civil society sector in improving inter- and intra- sectoral coordination, and to build their capacity for domestic violence prevention and provision of adequate victim support services. The SNC PDV Joint Programme pilots innovative models to engage men as partners in ending domestic violence. It also encourages non-governmental organisations and the media to influence behavioural change on the structural and cultural gender inequalities that sustain domestic violence.

The SNC PDV Joint Programme encompasses:

  • A duration of four years, from 1 January 2008 to 31 December 2011; and
  • Partnerships with Ministry of Labour and Social Policy, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of the Interior, the Agency for Employment, the Ministry of Education, the Ministry of justice, relevant Universities (the faculties of: Medical, Social Work and Policy, Psychology, Secondary and Higher Education of Nurses and Midwifes), non-governmental organisations and community leaders.

The SNC PDV Joint Programme is administered by the Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office (MPTF Office) of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in accordance with its financial regulations and rules.   

 

Assistance Strategy

The overall goal of the Strengthening National Capacities to Prevent Domestic Violence (SNC PDV) Joint Programme in the Former Yugoslav Republic of (FYR) Macedonia is to support and mobilize the government and the civil society sector in improving inter- and intra- sectoral coordination, and to build their capacity for domestic violence prevention and provision of adequate victim support services. The SNC PDV Joint Programme pilots innovative models to engage men as partners in ending domestic violence. It also encourages non-governmental organisations and the media to influence behavioural change on the structural and cultural gender inequalities that sustain domestic violence.

The SNC PDV Joint Programme tailors its activities towards achieving three key outcomes:

 

  • Outcome 1: Efficient policy-making and improved policy-implementation accountability of all relevant national stakeholders;
  • Outcome 2: Extensive and comprehensive protection and support to the victims of domestic violence; and
  • Outcome 3: Enhanced public awareness and reduced incidence of domestic violence. 

 

The SNC PDV Joint Programme outputs are:

  • Policy making and the National Strategy for protection against domestic violence and other relevant national strategies implemented;
  • National unified data collection system for monitoring incidence and trends of domestic violence established;
  • Standardized national protection system for the victims of domestic violence established;
  • Programmes for economic empowerment and reintegration of victims of domestic violence established;
  • Community outreach behaviour change programmes targeting most at risk communities  and public education campaigns implemented; and
  • Domestic violence integrated into the school/university curriculum;

The commitment of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), and the World Health Organisation (WHO) to SNC PDV Joint Programme is reflected in the following United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) outcomes: equal access to quality basic services (Health, Education, Social Welfare, HIV/AIDS prevention), especially for socially excluded groups; and sustainable employment opportunities increased, particularly in economically depressed areas and among vulnerable groups. The SNC PDV Joint Programme contributes towards the achievement of Millennium Development Goal 3, gender equality and women’s empowerment.
