Report: Violence against women in the family
The significant progress obtained in addressing the issue of family violence in the Republic of Moldova is a real fact. Nevertheless, a number of legal, institutional, and policy gaps still persist and need to be tackled. In this context, it is very important to have data and evidence on the prevalence of violence against women, the factors determining this phenomenon, as well as the impact of violence on the health and well-being of women and on the family in general. To know and understand the situation of violence against women in Moldova, the National Bureau of Statistics carried out in 2010 the study Violence against Women in the Family for the first time ever. It involved a rather complex approach, combining results of qualitative and quantitative research.
This study is developed within the framework of the UN Joint Project “Consolidating the National Statistical System”, by the National Bureau of Statistics of the Republic of Moldova, in partnership with UNDP, UN Women, and UNFPA, and with the financial support of the Swedish Embassy in the Republic of Moldova.
