Gender Based Violence (GBV) Case Management Training (Virtual and Onsite)
Gender-based violence is basically an umbrella term for any injurious act committed against a person based on socially ascribed (i.e. gender) differences between males and females. It includes acts that inflict physical, sexual, or mental harm or suffering, threats of such acts, coercion, and other deprivations of liberty. These acts can occur in public or in private spaces. Common forms of GBV include sexual violence (rape, attempted rape, unwanted touching, sexual exploitation, and sexual harassment), intimate partner violence (also referred to as domestic violence, including physical, emotional, sexual, and economic abuse), forced and early marriage and female genital mutilation. Gender-based violence is recognized as a widespread international public health and human rights issue.
