Responding to gender based violence in Biratnagar, Nepal

/ February 12, 2020

Hospital based One Stop Crisis Management Centres (OCMCs) are one of the Government of Nepal’s key responses to gender based violence (GBV). There are 55 OCMCs across Nepal. They provide an integrated package of services through a ‘one-door’ system that follows a multisectoral and locally coordinated approach to provide survivors with a comprehensive range of services including health care, psycho-social counselling, medico-legal services, access to safe homes, legal protection, personal security and rehabilitation support. OCMCs are founded on three core principles: (i) ensuring the security and safety of GBV survivors, (ii) maintaining confidentiality, and (iii) respecting the dignity, rights and wishes of survivors at all times.
