Humanitarian Response: GBV Area of Responsibility
Reported GBV cases remained very high. Partners referred 1,205 cases to GBV specialized service providers. 90 per cent of survivors were women and 28 per cent children. Denial of resources, physical assault, emotional abuse, and sexual violence are the most reported cases. GBV survivors received psychosocial support, health and livelihood services. There is a critical need to scale up lifesaving GBV services and advocate for access to affected communities in hard-to-reach areas.
GBV partners reached 27,448 persons including 18,719 in the NW and 8,738 in the SW through GBV interventions including psychosocial support, risk mitigation, capacity building of community members, GBV awareness-raising, women empowerment, MHPSS and livelihood activities for women and girls, survivors of sexual exploitation. Inadequate funds and security challenges continuously hinder GBV partners’ ability to meet vulnerable people’s basic needs in hard-to-reach areas.
