The gender alert has not currently given the expected results, but it makes visible a problem that is invisible, it is a step but that is not the only thing that must be done. Rubén Alberto Curiel / COORDINATOR OF THE MASTER’S DEGREE IN HUMAN RIGHTS AT THE IBERO PUEBLA
The Gender Violence Alert against women is a human rights protection mechanism that consists of a set of emergency government actions to confront and eradicate femicide violence and/or the existence of a comparative offense that prevents the full exercise of the human rights of women, in a given territory.
In Puebla, the Declaration was issued on April 8, 2019, for 50 municipalities of the entity, and includes 45 prevention, security and justice measures.
The government or governments that are obliged to apply it must practically change their public policies regarding the gender issue, that is, and they will have to apply policies in relation to women’s access to a life free of violence.

In the state, the first Action Plan of the country was designed and implemented, which specifically seeks to address the measures indicated in the Declaration and, in turn, proposes an inter-institutional coordination mechanism of the Powers of the State, through the dependencies of the public administration and instances of law enforcement.
The State Government resumed this coordination mechanism, with a 2020 Action Plan that gives continuity to the actions initiated and proposes new guidelines aimed at putting an end to gender-based violence in the entity. However, the lack of effectiveness of this is derived from a lack of diffusion.
It is necessary to strengthen the issues of dissemination of the gender alert itself, as you will remember when the alert began in all the radio stations, practically in the media there was a constant of being so much to re-educate people.

The 2020 Action Plan is made up of 84 specific actions that address 41 measures of the Declaration of gender violence, as follows: 35 actions to address 15 of the 17 prevention measures; 19 actions to address the 11 security measures; and 30 actions to address 15 of the 17 justice measures.
