Access to health and justice for women victims of violence is certainly one of the effective ways of supporting victims as well as redressing the physical, moral and psychological damage suffered. In order to define these problems encountered by women and to find mechanisms to facilitate this access, a survey was conducted in the towns of Pointe-Noire and Nkayi.

This survey has enabled the identification of the recurrent forms of violence to which women are subject in these two towns; the identification of the obstacles to access to justice and health; an inventory of the use of information and communication technologies in fighting violence against women; and the proposal of recommendations for civil society, partners, donors and the Ministry for the Promotion of Women and Women’s Integration in Development as well as town councils. The results of the survey will certainly contribute towards actions by civil society and various stakeholders involved in the response to sexual and domestic violence in the Republic of Congo.
