Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ As part of the second phase of the ‘Combating Gender-Based Violence in Mongolia’ project implemented by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the Government of Mongolia with funding support from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, MNT 95.3 million worth of personal protective equipment kits were provided for 17 one-stop service centers and 15 temporary shelters. UNFPA Mongolia Head of Office Kaori Ishikawa handed over the equipment to the Ministry of Justice and Home Affairs on April 6.

It is of great importance to ensure normal operations of the one-stop service centers and shelters for violence victims and to comply with infection control measures as COVID-19 is spreading. The PPE kits consist of surgical masks, protective wears, N95 masks, goggles, face coverings, gloves, and hand sanitizers.
