C for eligibility requirements.

Prevention of and an effective state response to femicides are essential elements to guarantee access to a life without violence for women.

Currently, the ability of many government institutions to prevent and respond to femicides is limited.

There are an array of reasons for this.

Inter-institutional coordination is uneven; some institutions are weak and their internal procedures lacking; in many cases, protection orders are not properly implemented; Amber and Alba alerts are deficient; and femicide investigations and prosecutions are weak.

The aggregate of these issues, as well as others, limits the ability of the state to prevent and respond to femicides.
