Shelters for Women Survivors of Violence: Availability and Accessibility in the Arab Region
The “Shelters for Women Survivors of Violence: Availability and Accessibility in the Arab Region” was completed in partnership with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Arab States Regional Office (ASRO), ABAAD Resource Centre for Gender Equality, and Women Against Violence Europe (WAVE).
The study aims to provide a snapshot on the provision of shelter services for women victims of violence in the Arab region. It is based on a desk review and responses from countries in the region on a questionnaire designed for collected data and information on the availability, accessibility and services offered within shelter services in the Arab region.
