With the support of the UN Women, the Women’s Union central Da Nang city has organised a training course for officials of centres supporting women and children who are victims of gender-based violence.
The officials have been equipped with basic knowledge about domestic violence and gender-based violence, and how to provide psychological support for the victims.
They also looked at the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on gender-based violence, and psychological intervention towards the victims amidst the epidemic spread.
The training course touched upon the increasing violence against women and children in the face of COVID-19 in Vietnam and the world, and the role of organisations and individuals, especially the Da Nang Women’s Union, in easing the situation.

According to the UN Women, one in three women worldwide experience physical or sexual violence mostly by an intimate partner. Violence against women and girls is a human rights violation.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, emerging data and reports from those on the front lines, have shown that all types of violence against women and girls, particularly domestic violence, has intensified.
“This is the Shadow Pandemic growing amidst the COVID-19 crisis and we need a global collective effort to stop it. As COVID-19 cases continue to strain health services, essential services, such as domestic violence shelters and helplines, have reached capacity. More needs to be done to prioritize addressing violence against women in COVID-19 response and recovery efforts,” it said./.
