|UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination and violence against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action, and peace and security. UN Women supports UN Member States as they set global standards for achieving gender equality, and work with governments and civil society to design laws, policies, programs and services needed to implement these standards. UN Women Egypt Country Office is based in Cairo and works in the three priority areas: Leadership and Political Participation; Economic Empowerment; and Ending Violence Against Women.
Globally and in Egypt, in coordination with UN agencies, UN Women has worked extensively on the development of essential services for survivors of violence, including supporting the design and operationalization of One Stop Centers for Survivors of Violence in several countries. The One Stop Center (OSC) model for attending to survivors of violence against women and girls provides access to an integrated range of services including medical, legal and psychological support within a single location. Trained multidisciplinary staff and private consultation rooms contribute to reduced survivor interviews, improved multisectoral coordination and improved quality of survivor-centred care with the ultimate goal of reduced survivor revictimisation when seeking care. One key concept in the context of social inclusion and survivor-centered service provision is accessibility. The ease of access for all people, regardless of their individual characteristics or needs, to public services such as the OSC is essential.
Recognizing the importance of the One Stop Center (OSC) model for creating a safe and supportive environment for women and girls to seek immediate protection, medical treatment and legal assistance, and the need to enhance coordinated response and referral, in October 2021, Prime Ministerial decree 827 was issued.  Decree 827 calls for the establishment of a pilot OSC in Cairo, and the eventual replication of the model in other Governorates. Under the coordination of the National Council for Women (NCW), the OSC in Cairo is now in the process of being established and will include services for police reporting, legal aid, medical aid and forensics and temporary shelter.
The National Engineering Consultant will be responsible for proving the required design, specification, Bill of Quantities, detailed drawings and tender documents, site supervision, as well as safety a certification for the construction of the One Stop Center for Survivors of Violence. The OSC premises is located in down town Cairo. It consists of 5 floors and each floor is 4 apartments. The engineer is required to provide the aforementioned requirements on the full capacity of the premises. The premises is also equipped with electricity and water.
