The Peruvian Government will increase prevention efforts, education, and sanctions to combat violence against women by allocating the necessary economic resources, President Martin Vizcarra affirmed.
"No more deaths! No more violence against women!" the statesman expressed during Monday night's address to the nation from Lima-based Government Palace.
The Peruvian leader pointed out that —despite the concrete measures undertaken by the Government— the femicide of Eyvi Agreda
shows these efforts remain insufficient.
In this regard, Mr. Vizcarra noted nearly S/20 million (about US$6.11 million) was allocated to set up 50 Women's Emergency Centers at police stations.
