A Spanish-funded project to promote domestic violence prevention has proved a success in Vietnam since it started two years ago.

The assessment was agreed by participants at a meeting on October 10 in Hanoi to review the communications project to promote the implementation of the Law on Domestic Violence Prevention.

Over the past two years, the project, sponsored by the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation, has focused on raising awareness of domestic abuse via publications and television programmes, along with improving the role of men.

The success of the work has helped change public understanding of domestic violence prevention and happy family building.

On this occasion, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism granted an insignia to Silvia Vaca Sotomayor, Head of the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation, for her contribution to the project’s success.

She affirmed that she is willing to continue sharing her experiences in gender equality with Vietnam for its fair and sustainable development.-VNA
