Monaco has always been proactive in providing assistance to the aims and objectives of Monaco Says No To Violence. With this website and brochure as resource centres, we are able to centralize all relevant information so that those at risk can receive assistance as quickly as possible that is best tailored to their needs.

Didier Gamerdinger, Minister for Health and Social Affairs in Monaco, to ask him questions about his views on ending domestic violence and the importance of an official day to mark the fight against domestic violence in Monaco.
