Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/. As the world continues to grapple with the pandemic, we have been witnessing severe consequences of this global crisis including not only economic but also social and cultural impacts. Like other countries around the world, Mongolia has been experiencing sharp increase in violence against women and children since the pandemic hit.


UNFPA and UNICEF have been working together with financial support from the Government of Japan to protect maternal and child health, as well as to prevent and respond to violence against women and children during the time of COVID-19 global pandemic.


As part of this partnership, dignity kits, which contains basic hygiene and sanitation items, have been handed over to the One Stop Service Centers (OSSC) where the number of survivors has increased since the pandemic hit, including the OSSCs at the districts of Bayanzurkh and Khan-Uul, the National Trauma and Orthopaedic Research Center and the UB City Police Agency.
