Interagency Gender-Based Violence Case Management Capacity Building Initiative


In humanitarian situations, GBV service provision through GBV case management is the primary entry point for survivors to access other services and receive crisis and longer-term psychosocial support, especially since more established health and social services are typically lacking in emergency settings.


Under the leadership of UNICEF, the GBVIMS Global Team spearheaded a two-year project to understand gaps and address needs in GBV case management. This initiative culminated in June 2017 – thanks to funding from the U.S. Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) – with the publication of the Interagency Gender-Based Violence Case Management Guidelines: Providing care and case management services to survivors of gender-based violence in humanitarian settings.
