Launch of Thailand’s first IT-equipped One Stop Crisis Centre
UN Women witnesses the launch of Thailand’s first IT-equipped One Stop Crisis Centre that promises to give immediate social assistance to children, women, elderly and persons with disabilities who face problems of teenage pregnancy, human trafficking and domestic violence.
The One Stop Crisis Centre (OSCC) houses a Hotline of trained staff with network of 22,000 crisis centers around the country and works with 1,300 mobile units to access communities. Administered by the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security, the OSCC functions with computerized database where survivors are able to report cases to all government agencies, not necessarily with the police to navigate through the justice chain.
