UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, is encouraged by the progress being made on a global programme that seeks to improve the quality of, and access to, essential services that respond to the needs of women and girls subjected to violence. 

Service delivery guidelines for the core elements of each essential service have been identified to ensure the delivery of high-quality services, particularly for low and middle-income countries for women and girls experiencing violence. Taken together, these elements comprise the “Essential Services Package”.

The Essential Services Package comprises seven overlapping modules. This important manual is the seventh module and provides guidance on estimating resource requirements for the UN Essential Services Package for Women and Girls Subject to Violence. The manual focuses on two essential services and one essential action across three sectors: initial contact, safe accommodation and the creation of a formal structure for the coordination and governance of co-ordination at local and national levels.
