Problem Statement / Issue:

Currently, there is no systematic response mechanism to domestic violence at the primary healthcare level. Consequently, many survivors who seek care at primary healthcare centres do not receive adequate support.

Proposal of Solution and Call to Action:

1) Display information on domestic violence in the waiting rooms and washrooms of Klinik Kesihatan and hospitals
2) Require healthcare providers to ask about domestic violence when patients have clinical conditions associated with domestic violence
3) Train healthcare providers to recognise, respond to, and refer cases of domestic violence
4) Establish a referral system for domestic violence at the primary healthcare level
