What is GBV Programming?
The UNCHR defines GBV programming as a toolkit to prevent, mitigate, and respond to GBV. Its main purpose is to reduce the risks of GBV in all sectors of all types of organisations and communities.
PREVENTION – programs that prevent GBV by addressing the root causes such as: gender inequality & systemic discrimination.
MITIGATION – specific interventions in a cross-sectoral coordination to reduce risks & exposure to GBV, and improve safety.
RESPONSE – multi-sectoral programs that address needs of survivors such as safety, judicial, psychosocial & capacity building
GBV is a violation of human rights.
The wide spectrum of GBV starts with the abuse of power that inflicts harm on the survivor and may be physical, emotional, psychological, sexual in nature such as:
- Physical Assault
- Sexual Abuse
- Intimate Partner Violence
- Honour killings
- Child Marriages
- Female Genital Mutilation
- Forced Marriages
- the denial of resources & access to information
- Human Trafficking including online
- Sexual bullying (online and offline)
Most GBV are committed by family and friends, members of community, unknown assailants, condoned by the State, non-state, or institutions
