In order for the essential sectors and services to work together effectively, coordinated responses must establish a governance mechanism both formally and informally to ensure that a comprehensive women and child centered response is provided to all women and girls (and their children when necessary).  The Programme developed guidelines on coordination and governance of coordination.  The Guidelines are designed to ensure that the services of all sectors are coordinated and governed to respond in a comprehensive way, are women and child-centered, and are accountable to victims/survivors and to each other. 

See the Essential Actions Core Elements and Quality Guidelines for a general guidance for establishing a coordination and governance of coordination in line with best practices.
