Assessment of the Performance of the Hospital-Based One Stop Crisis Management Centres
Abstract:
The Population Division of the Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) is the Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) Secretariat for Nepal’s health sector. The division’s work under this role is crucial for implementing the government’s mandate to make quality health services accessible to all citizens, including women, and poor and disadvantaged people. Large numbers of women and children in Nepal experience gender-based violence (GBV) that results in physical, sexual and psychological damage. The Nepal Demographic and Health Survey (2011) found that more than one in five women aged 15–49 years had experienced physical violence since their fifteenth birthdays, while 9% of them had experienced sexual violence. MoHP is the main executive body responsible for implementing Clause 3 of the ‘National Action Plan 2010 against Gender-Based Violence’. This clause calls for providing integrated services to survivors of gender-based violence by establishing hospital-based one-stop crisis management centres (OCMCs). MoHP has, since 2011, established 15 OCMCs in hospitals to provide integrated services to GBV survivors. Two years after the first OCMCs were established it was time to assess their performance and capacity. The Ministry of Health and Population (MoHP) introduced one-stop crisis management centres (OCMCs) in hospitals in 2011 in order to provide integrated services to survivors of gender-based violence (GBV). The assessment was supported by the Nepal Health Sector Support Programme (NHSSP) and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA). It was carried out by reviewing documents, interviewing central and district level OCMC stakeholders, tracking and collecting case studies from 20 GBV survivors who had received OCMC services, and by making field visits to four OCMCs in order to verify the data collected and to hold discussions with OCMC service providers and other stakeholders.
