Ana Redondo traveled to Tenerife to continue advancing in the coordination and strengthening of the institutional response to gender-based violence.

The minister met with the president of the Canary Islands «to continue advancing in the fight against gender-based violence». In this sense, they will address the situation of crisis centers open 24 hours a day for the care of victims of sexual violence in the islands, to which the Ministry transferred almost four and a half million euros.

In total, six autonomous communities have launched at least one 24-hour comprehensive care center for victims of sexual violence funded by the Ministry of Equality through the Next Generation funds, from the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan. These communities are Cantabria (Santander), the Basque Country (Bilbao and Vitoria), Murcia (El Palmar), Navarra (Pamplona), Melilla, and Castilla-La Mancha (Albacete).

In addition, during the upcoming summer, a center of this nature is expected to open in Madrid; another in San Sebastian (Basque Country); Teruel and Huesca, in Aragon; Toledo and Guadalajara, in Castilla-La Mancha; Alicante and Valencia in the Valencian Community.

It is expected that during the fourth quarter, the new centers funded by European funds will open in Castilla-La Mancha (Cuenca and Ciudad Real); Aragon (Zaragoza); Valencia (Castellón); La Rioja (Logroño); one in each provincial capital of Castilla y León; Extremadura (Cáceres, Badajoz, Mérida, and Plasencia); the four provincial capitals of Catalonia; the eight provincial capitals of Andalusia; the Balearic Islands (Mallorca and Menorca); Asturias (Oviedo); the Canary Islands (Santa Cruz de Tenerife and Gran Canaria) and Ceuta, and five centers in Galicia (two centers in A Coruña, one in Lugo, another in Ourense, and Pontevedra).

The creation of these facilities is provided for in the Organic Law on Comprehensive Guarantee of Sexual Freedom. They are included as public services of permanent interdisciplinary care that provide crisis assistance to victims of sexual violence, their families, and those around them. Thus, they provide psychological, legal, and social care and include telephone and in-person support and information 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
