To better understand the drivers of violence against children and women as well as human trafficking, Indonesia launched an innovative, multi-stakeholder collaborative effort to map such incidences across three provinces. Partnering with the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), local primary health care providers, the Integrated Service Center of Women and Children Empowerment (P2TP2A), Firm Family Planning, local police, and local NGOs, the initiative is backed by a reserve of human resources. The project collects data from service recipients (those reporting violence), service providers (local hospitals and P2TP2A), as well as stakeholders involved in violence reporting in other sectors. Despite its small scale and limited capacity to handle an increasing caseload, the project has been successful in providing a clearer overview of the mental health and violence problems it is facing. As this report recommends the development of partnerships that support the mental health needs of vulnerable communities, Indonesia’s collaborative work serves as a powerful example.
