An outdoor awareness-raising campaign to prevent gender-based violence started on 1 May 2012 with support from the OSCE Project Co-ordinator in Ukraine (PCU).
The campaign will be implemented from May to July with advertising on public transport in four Ukrainian cities hosting the European football championship in 2012 - Donetsk, Kharkiv, Kyiv and Lviv.
The campaign aims to inform people about the problem and promote access to services offered to victims of domestic violence by Ukrainian social service providers.
In November and December 2011, the PCU implemented a similar campaign to inform trafficking victims, social groups vulnerable to human trafficking and the Ukrainian public at large.
Both campaigns are part of the nationwide social project Let’s Do It Together, initiated by the State Service for Youth and Sports ahead of the European football championship that Ukraine will co-host together with Poland in June 2012.
