RECORDING: Building Capacity On GBV Case Management: An Unprecedented Journey Across 8 Countries


When: Wednesday, 9 December 2020

Organizer: GBV COP and GBV IMS Steering

Description: The 6th standard in the Inter-agency GBV Minimum Standards regards ensuring that GBV survivors access appropriate, quality case management services including coordinated care and support to navigate available services.

Following the development of the Interagency GBV Case Management Guidelines in 2017, the GBVIMS Global Team piloted a strategy and approach for building capacity on GBV case management in Mali, Nigeria and Somalia. Thanks to funding from USAID/BHA and under the leadership of UNICEF, these pilots led to the development of the GBV Case Management Capacity Building Initiative. The Initiative was implemented in 2018 in Bangladesh, CAR, Libya, Niger and Yemen. The result: more than 3,303 individuals were trained on GBV case management across all 3 pilots and 5 implementation countries.

Join the GBV Community of Practice in this webinar to learn more from the GBVIMS Global Team and the implementing country participants about the unprecedented success and footprint of this interagency initiative that aimed at building an in-country Pool of trainers/experts in GBV case management. The webinar will also share guidance on how you can roll out the Interagency GBV Case Management Guidelines in your context, based on the learning from this initiative.

Catherine Poulton (UNICEF/GBViE Manager and GBVIMS Steering Committee representative) and Virginia Zuco Silva (UNICEF/GBVIMS Technical Team).
