The project contributes to the development of a comprehensive and holistic approach to the needs of victims in cases of gender-based violence and domestic violence and focuses on creating coordinated protection. The partnership leads the beneficiary and the project partners to work more closely together to implement the necessary measures, with the aim of ensuring a common understanding of the specific needs of women experiencing violence and victims of domestic violence. The aim of the project is a necessary and adequate systemic response of a coordinated system consisting of police, health care, and social services, which will work in an integrated way to prevent secondary and repeated victimization and physical and psychological recovery of victims. The project will improve the protection and support of women experiencing violence and victims of domestic violence within the competencies and procedures of the institutions concerned, including the necessary completion of professional capacities and material equipment. The aim is to make measures and procedures aimed at preventing gender-based violence and domestic violence and secondary victimization of victims highly functioning in the upcoming period. Regular meetings and cooperation between the institutions involved and support services at national and regional level will contribute to building a system of coordinated response between the institutions concerned.
