The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) has announced a call for proposals for the Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to inter alia:
• develop quality standards, in addition to the existing licensing standards, for shelters that accommodate victims of DV and other forms of VAWG based on a gendered understanding of VAW;
• enable the empowerment of victims and a victim-centred and integrated approach to service provision;
• provide protocols and procedures for health safety measures, including procedures for testing prior to accommodation in shelters or separate premises for newly admitted women before they are tested for COVID-19.
