Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on functioning of safe houses in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Safe houses in Bosnia and Herzegovina are struggling to provide adequate protection to women survivors of violence and their children, as domestic violence is on the rise due to the COVID-19 crisis.
In March 2020, UN Women in Bosnia and Herzegovina conducted a rapid assessment of the status of specialized services provided by eight shelters in the country to find out their immediate needs for sustaining their activities. This infographic is a visual representation of the collected data, available in Bosnian and English.
