Femicides - Prevention and Response Activity: The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) seeks applications from qualified organizations to fund an activity entitled Femicides - Prevention and Response. Eligibility for this award is restricted to Mexican Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO's). Please see Section 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.
