    The Guide provides broad-based specialists with comprehensive information on the documentation of cases of violence that affect all areas of the victim’s life – physical, mental, spiritual, economic, social and cultural. On the other hand, the guide provides educational institutions that are training or providing ongoing training, a new and broader vision of gender-based violence, particularly with regard to focusing on victims and trauma and the interdisciplinary approach in assisting victims and documentation of cases.

    The Guide was developed within the project “Increasing the observance of women’s rights in Moldova through combating gender based violence”, implemented by the Promo-LEX Association, the Rehabilitation Centre for Torture Victims “Memoria” and the Association against Domestic Violence “Casa Marioarei” with the financial support of the European Union. The overall objective of the project is to increase respect for women’s rights in Moldova by combating gender-based violence.
