ANU and DVCS team from Canberra visit Lae


From 5 to 9 March 2018, in partnership with the Morobe Family and Sexual Violence Action Committee (FSVAC), we hosted a visit from Dr Judy Putt (Department of Pacific Affairs, Australian National University) and Mrs Eve Ball from the Domestic Violence Crisis Service (DVCS) in Canberra.

Dr Putt is leading some research on the use and efficacy of protection orders in Lae, and Mrs Ball was in Lae to continue to develop the ongoing partnership between DVCS and Femili PNG.

We thank the Morobe FSVAC who helped to arrange the visit, as well as all the stakeholders who received the team.
