"The implementation of the Law on Domestic Violence is a fact since the beginning of 2012. Accordingly, the Government of Angola has developed an intensive agent-training program that will work in the short and long terms, and has created a National department for the prevention and combat of violence against women and children, with the specific task to work on studies to diagnose root causes of violence against women and sexual violence against girls. Given these challenges, the Angolan government has created an organ tasked with penalizing perpetrators of domestic violence, as well as dedicated premises within local courts"

"The law criminalizes domestic violence and penalizes offenders with prison sentences and fines depending on the severity of their crime. In 2015 the government reported it had 27 domestic violence counseling centers, seven other shelters, and various treatment centers throughout the country. It called for more studies into the causes of domestic violence as well as more shelters to help victims. The ministry maintained a program with the Angolan Bar Association to give free legal assistance to abused women and established counseling centers to help families cope with domestic abuse. Statistics on prosecutions for violence against women were not available"
