From June through December 2019, members of Committees for Prevention of Domestic Violence will conduct awareness raising events aimed at preventing domestic violence in Kara-Suu and Nookat districts. 
 
The Committees for Prevention of Domestic Violence were established to combat domestic violence at the local level. They help to improve cooperation between members of the Committees, including representatives of state district administrations, local units of the Ministry of Labor and Social Development, educational and health institutions, and law enforcement bodies. The Committees also include civil society members such as courts of the elderly, women’s councils, and other active residents. Local authorities represented by the heads of ayil okmotu and members of local councils play a key role in establishing such committees and approving their membership and plans. 
 
Since January 2019, Public Fund DIA and Public Union Gulmaidan have been working closely with five Committees in Nookat district (Gulistanovskey and Keneshskey rural municipalities, and ayil okmotu Mirmahmudov and Isanov) and five Committees in Kara-Suu district (Madynskey and Jooshskey rural municipalities and three territorial committees in Kara-Suu town). The Committees were established as part of the project “Promoting Local Committees for Safeguarding and Protection from Domestic Violence,” implemented with the support of the USAID Collaborative Governance Program.
