Remote psychosocial support model

Protecting the rights of refugee and migrant girls and adolescent girls survivors of gender-based violence.


In many countries of Latin America and the Caribbean, some mobility restriction or social confinement/isolation measures have been implemented as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to the identification of a series of common challenges and problems that have directly affected girls and adolescent women in the region.

The context of human mobility in times of COVID-19 with the measures of social isolation have generally aggravated the situation of girls and adolescent survivors of gender-based violence.

For this reason, it is essential to implement a remote support model that can provide them with the psychosocial support they require, especially for migrant, displaced or refugee girls and adolescents girls, whether they are traveling with family members, separated or unaccompanied, are generally weakened in their protection structures and may lack the support networks they had in their country of origin. The context of human mobility places them in a situation of greater vulnerability, which has been aggravated by the emergence of COVID-19 pandemic, which presents new risks and threats to their survival, increases pre-existing threats or the risk of suffering various forms of gender-based violence (GBV).
