The National Human Rights Commission (CNDH) and the Gender Studies Program at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) have signed an agreement to contribute to the eradication of all violence against women.

National Ombudsman Luis Raul Gonzalez pointed out that human rights are in the heart of this center of studies, as well as in its goals of training, teaching, research, promotion.

That is why, the CNDH has established this agreement with the UNAM to give a higher value to all responsibilities, tasks, commitments and actions of the national body, he said.

The aim of human rights is to emphasize the implementation of recommendations, hence the need to build alliances such as those included in this kind of collaboration, Gonzalez stated.
