Best Practices Manual PWDV Act 2005

The Manual is an amalgamation of best practices compiled from information received through the annual Monitoring & Evaluation exercises conducted by State Governments and state visits. Some best practices highlighted the appointment of full-time government cadre of protection officers (POs) in Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu and the launch of a nation-wide campaign to create awareness on violence against women by Breakthrough.

The manual also highlighted the challenges of implementation such as employing under-qualified POs. Overall, the Manual will be critical to states to identify successful interventions and replicate these models.
