UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action, and peace and security. Placing women’s rights at the centre of its efforts, UN Women is mandated to lead and coordinate United Nations’ system efforts to ensure that commitments on gender equality and gender mainstreaming are translated into action. It is also mandated to provide strong and coherent leadership in support of Member States’ priorities and efforts, building effective partnerships with civil society and other relevant actors.
UN Women in Tanzania is partnering with the Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MoHCDEGC) to implement the National Plan of Action to Prevent and Respond to Violence Against Women and Children 2017 – 2021. The MoHCDEGC is mandated to provide Social Welfare Services to the both men and women survivors of violence. These services are provided in line with existing international and national policies, legislations and guidelines to include; Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs),Convention on the Elimination of all forms of discrimination Against Women (CEDAW),The African Agenda 2063 (The Africa we want), Tanzania Development Vision 2025.
Tanzania Demography and Health Survey (TDHS) 2015 shows that half of all married women have ever experienced spousal violence, most commonly physical violence (39%) and emotional violence (36%); 14% have experienced sexual violence. Furthermore, the TDHS 2015 revealed major source for help to stop the violence where the most common source for help was the woman’s own family (56%) irrespective of the type of violence; Nine percent of women who sought help for violence reported to the police; one percent of women who sought help from medical practitioner; 2.4 percent of women sought help from lawyers; and 1.5 percent of women who sought help from social work organisation.
GBV cases have been managed at the community through community volunteers, CSOs, faith-based organizations, at the ward levels. These services are provided through ward tribunals, and at the council level through Social Welfare Offices and at the national level through Commissioner for Social Welfare Reconciliation Board. Despite these structures there is no standardized and harmonized guidelines and tools in place to guide all stakeholders in provision of services to survivors of GBV. As a result, services are provided in fragmented and un-coordinated manner.
Furthermore, the statistical data call for the need to develop a comprehensive system that will guide the government and other stakeholders involved to support women victims of violence and other abuses in a most appropriate, systematic and professional manner particularly in handling cases related to physical, sexual, and emotional violence through a survivor centred approach. In this context, the Ministry considered it important to develop case management guidelines integrating ‘Multi-Disciplinary Approach’ to provide standards for good practice to ensure that GBV survivors receive quality services.
The Ministry in collaboration with UN WOMEN has agreed to develop case management guideline for women survivors of violence. The national case management fir women survivors of violence aims at creating a comprehensive and integrated protection system delivering coordinated, quality and timely support to women victims of violence and other forms of abuses. The guideline will provide professional guidance to service providers and other frontline workers in providing support services to Women Victims of Violence at the individual, family and community level.
