Estimating the resource requirement for a Minimum Package of Essential Services for Women and Children experiencing violence in Timor-Leste

UN Women Timor-Leste, Ministry of Social Solidarity

One of the main barriers to implementation of legal and policy commitments, globally and in Timor-Leste, is the allocation of adequate resources for services supporting victims/survivors of Violence Against Women and ChildrenResponding to this challenge, UN Women, in partnership with the Ministry of Social Solidarity collaborated between 2014 and 2016 on the first-ever study to cost the resources required for implementing Timor-Leste’s commitments under the National Action Plan on Gender-Based Violence (NAP-GBV), in line with its obligations under the Law against Domestic Violence.

The report offers a tool to estimate the resource requirements for a minimum package of essential services for women and children experienced violence in Timor-Leste and allows the opportunity to have a deeper conversation about the costs of services for survivors of violence against women and to ask questions to understand the problem and solutions better.
