The aims of this research are to:
Gender-based violence (GBV) is common in conflicts though the exact figure is often underestimated. Furthermore, survivors of GBV don’t have access to proper medical care. This research will shine light on the magnitude of the problem and how to equip the newly restored facilities to respond to such important needs.
This study aims to alleviate the negative health and social effects of GBV by increasing understanding of the scope of GBV, associated stigma and barriers to GBV services. The research will also explore the needs of women and girls and how services can be made available, accessible and of high quality.
As part of the theory of change of this project, the outputs initially contribute to the understanding of the needs of GBV survivors and the required and feasible health system response. The short-term outcome within this study are the service delivery models/protocols, including a detailed description of required workforce competencies for integrated GBV care. These models are anticipated to include, but are not limited to, services and referral systems at all levels of care (community to tertiary), encompassing the individuals social, mental and physical needs as well as community-based interventions.
