Welcome to the GBV AoR

Hello! Thanks for visiting the GBV AoR website. We are currently working on an awesome new website. Email us directly at gbvaor@unfpa.org and we’ll provide you with a timely response.

The Gender-based Violence Area of Responsibility (GBV AoR), led by the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and the Children’s Rights and Emergency Relief Organization (UNICEF), is the global level forum for coordinating prevention and response to GBV in humanitarian and other crisis settings.  The objectives are shared by a broad grouping of GBV actors, including – but not limited to- non-government organizations (NGOs), donors, academics, independent experts and United Nations (UN) entities.  The GBV AoR works together to try to ensure accountable and effective approaches to GBV globally.  Since 2008, the GBV AoR has a functional component of the Global Protection Cluster (GPC).
