Efforts to tackle women's violence.
Efforts continue to be made to overcome women's violence.

The case of violence against women is a serious problem that has become a global concern since decades ago. Secretary General of the United Nations (UN), Ban Ki Moon, has called on countries in the world to provide various policies and legal instruments for recovery for women victims of violence and bring to justice perpetrators of violence. This was conveyed in his 2012 speech, "Each and every state has an obligation to develop or improve the relevant laws, policies and plans, bring perpetrators to justice and provide remedies to women who have been subjected to violence."

Violence against women is now increasingly recognized as a public health problem and is a violation of human rights. Countries around the world have begun to take various actions to respond to the problem of violence against women through political and social reform. An assessment conducted by the Service Providers Forum for Victims of Violence against 64 P2TP2A in various regions in Indonesia found other problems such as limited human resources and the absence of a P2TP2A governance system.  This is the reason P2TP2A cannot perform its role and function optimally.  Although not all P2TP2A experiences the conditions as mentioned above, but overall shows that the existence of P2TP2A as a "spearhead" integrated services for women and children victims of violence requires improvement in order to be able to carry out its mandate in providing services for women and children victims of violence which is a manifestation of  government responsibility for fulfilling victims' rights. Furthermore, to increase the capacity of P2TP2A HR can be done by apprenticeship to a service provider forum, or by interagency agreement to borrow NGO staff and social workers.  In addition, special mechanisms and special SOPs need to be developed for vulnerable groups and victims of sexual violence.  P2TP2A also needs to add assistants who have case handling expertise competencies.  The recruitment of management, activists and assistants must use a recruitment mechanism and use a merit system.  The case documentation system also needs to be improved so that it can be used as a reference for handling cases that are more comprehensive and integrated.  Develop a strategic plan together with a network of partnerships and victims / survivors' associations so that they can formulate joint steps to improve service quality, as well as carry out regular participatory evaluation monitoring with stakeholders and the public.
