In Algeria, sexual harassment is punished by the Penal Code, including verbal and emotional harassment at home and in public spaces. The Algerian Constitution guarantees to both men and women the same equal rights to live in dignity and protected from all forms of violence and discrimination. The Ministry of National Solidarity, Family and Women's Affairs National Strategy against Gender Based-Violence (GBV) was developed is 2015 to end GBV through enhancing multi-sectoral coordination and creating a referral system for women and girls subject to violence.

Several non-governmental organizations, international organizations and community based organizations provide psychological and psychosocial support to survivors of gender based violence on a case to case basis.

UNFPA in Algiers offer psychosocial assistance, medical treatment and rape kits to survivors, and promotes the right of all women and girls to live free of violence and abuse.

UN Women also provide support to counseling/crisis centers in Algeria (the CIDDEF and BALSAM network). The BALSAM network is composed of 15 counseling centers and provide services to women survivors of violence in rural areas.
