Ulaanbaatar/MONTSAME/ A One Stop Service Center for survivors of gender-based violence and domestic violence opened in Bayanzurkh district of Ulaanbaatar on March 20. It is the fifth OSSC in the city- a result of joint efforts and cost sharing between the district authorities, UNFPA Mongolia and the Swiss Development Agency.


"This serves as a great example for other district and aimag leaders and state agencies on what can be done to help survivors of violence access protection and necessary services,” said Kaori Ishikawa, the UNFPA Head of Office in Mongolia. All together UNFPA helped opening 13 OSSCs all over the country. Three more OSSCs are planned to be launched this year.
