Gender-Based Violence (GBV)

The GBV has become one on the significant issue that organizations seek to address. Recognize that the key to preventing GBV is from having a strong commitment to working towards gender equality. This includes the efforts to prevent violence from happening by addressing it's root causes, increasing awareness of the problem and its impact, and improving services for survivors of GBV.

As known, there are numerous types of GBV can be experienced throughout the lifecycle including psychological abuse; sexual harassment; deprivation of education, food, economic, and health resources; sexual exploitation and abuse, including trafficking; female genital mutilation/cutting; intimate partner violence; and elder abuse.

GBV is one of the most challenging issues for populations affected by armed conflict and humanitarian emergencies. When existing social networks and protection mechanisms are disrupted, women and girls are more exposed and vulnerable to abuse. GBV is not only a violation of human rights with many harmful consequences for individuals, families, communities, and societies; it also translates into significant costs for countries and affects their human, social, and economic development. While there are challenges and ethical issues related to the financial burden of addressing the GBV.
