Final Report: Mobile technology targeting GBV among Syrian adolescent refugees

http://www.elrha.org/researchdatabase/final-report-mobile-technology-targeting-gbv-among-syrian-adolescent-refugees/


Mobile phones are ubiquitous among the displaced Syrian population and are a primary means of communication. Assessments in other countries hosting Syrian refugees have revealed a lack of information, awareness and access to specialized GBV services. Mobile phones may facilitate information sharing and communication about GBV risks for this at-risk refugee population. An innovative mobile tool will be developed and tested using RapidPro, an open source communication platform, to disseminate SMS messages with information about GBV risks and available services for at-risk adolescents and youth refugees in Izmir, Turkey. This tool aimed to increase access to essential information and connect the refugee population to existing GBV prevention and response services.

The final project report provides information on the methodology, activities, outputs, impact and dissemination of learning.
