Doctors in Central Sulawesi, Indonesia, are using training from the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) to identify and respond to cases of domestic Violence. The training helps doctors recognize both physical and psychological signs of abuse, allowing them to refer victims for further support. The UNFPA pilot program has seen significant results, with an increase in identified cases of domestic violence. However, reporting remains a challenge due to the stigma and financial disincentives faced by victims. The Indonesian government has partnered with UN agencies to address gender-based violence and is working to replicate the program's success nationwide.
