At the meeting we discussed the course of implementation of the project, activities that have already been implemented and events that are going to follow in the coming months.

This project is exceptionally important in strengthening institutional mechanisms of coordination and an integrated multi-sectoral approach in cases of domestic violence in the targeted municipalities. Special attention will be paid to raising awareness of citizens in eight rural communities/ villages on the prevention of gender-based violence.

Project activities are being implemented in the municipalities of Gornji Vakuf/Uskoplje, Livno, Bosansko Grahovo, Derventa and Bosanski Brod.
