The Jakarta Child Protection and Empowerment and Population Control (PPAPP) Agency received 209 reports on women through integration services during the second quarter of 2020.

15 percent report to the dial 112 for all emergency services

Jakarta PPAPP Agency Head Tuty Kusumawati disclosed as many as 67 percent of victims came directly to the Integrated Women's and Children's Center (P2TP2A) and 18 percent made reports through the complaint post in the child-friendly playgrounds (RPTRA) and the flats.

"15 percent report to the dial 112 for all emergency services," she expressed, Wednesday (7/1).

The agency also cooperated with eight regional general hospitals (RSUD) in Jakarta to provide an Integrated Service Center (PPT) for victims of violence against women and children.

Those eight RSUDs were Tarakan, Koja, Cengkareng, Pasar Minggu, Pasar Rebo, Budi Asih, Adiyaksa and Duren Sawit.

Each PPT had forensic doctors, psychologists and psychiatrists who provide visum et repertum (VER) and visum et psychiatric (VEP) services free of charge.

"During April to June, there were 90 cases that have been served in hospitals and puskesmas," she explained.

Through this integrated service and handling, she hoped that it would make it easier for the public to get comprehensive government services, as well as foster public awareness and openness to participate in reporting acts of violence against children and women.

She urged women and children in Jakarta not to be afraid to report yet they were entitled to protection, and this service could be accessed anytime and by anyone.

"We also have safe house facilities as legal protection and security guarantees to all women and children," she stressed.
