Observatory of Violence
The Observatory of Violence is an initiative of civil society developed in the department of Matagalpa. It was carried out with the aim of responding to the high levels of gender violence in the region. The observatory, in addition to statistical and comparative reports on this subject - using data from other civil society organizations, the Institute of Legal Medicine and the Public Prosecutor's Office - also organizes working groups dealing with issues such as the Comprehensive Law against Violence. In turn, it tracks cases of femicide.
