Violence against Women (VAW) is a universal problem that continues to persist and constitutes a wide spread violation of human rights and a real obstacle  to peace and development.

Violence against women is present in all countries, cutting across boundaries of coulture, religion, education and age. No society can claim to be free from such violence. Specific group of women are more exposed and more vulnerable, including minority, indigenous, migrant, refugee women and those in armed conflict as well as women with disabilities and elderly.
