Mexico: Women's rghts protection at risk

, Index number: AMR 41/2625/2020

On 23 April, the Mexican government suspended funding for different programmes to attend the COVID-19 pandemic, including that of the Indigenous and Afro-Mexican Women Shelters (CAMIs). These shelters provided direct support to victims of violence and undertook prevention work. The government has not been transparent about how these cuts could affect other programmes that support and care for women victims of violence.
