National Steering Council on Domestic Violence #1

Date: 28 November 2019
Attended by Purani Mogan

I attended “Mesyuarat Jawatankuasa Menangani Keganasan Rumah Tangga” in KPWKM. This committee is comprised of 16 government agency and 4 NGOs and AWAM will be one of the permanent member of the committee together with WCC, NCWO and WAO. MOH, PDRM, JKM, Jabatan Pembangunan Wanita and WAO presented on domestic violence. Some of the things that the committee concluded after the presentation is that there is no proper data collected on DV and various agencies are working independently on DV thus having different processes. Therefore the next step for the committee is to arrange a workshop to make a comprehensive action plan to handle domestic violence.
