Social services in Rwanda

1. Security
The government of Rwanda has put in place various strategies to further combat Gender Based Violence (GBV) and child abuse including the scaling up of the Isange One Stop Centre to all district hospitals across the country since 2017.
Isange One Stop Centre started in July 2009 at Kacyiru Police Hospital (KPH) as a pilot project to provide free psycho-socio, medical and legal services to adult and child survivors of gender based violence and child abuse.
 

The Rwanda National Police (RNP) has been at the forefront in the fight against GBV and child abuse. Many awareness campaigns are frequently organized by the Rwanda National Police in partnership with the Ministries of Family and Gender Promotion, Health and Justice to further loop the general public to prevent the vice.

Rwandans have been called upon to stand up against gender based violence and child abuse which are still among the common crimes committed in communities.
