Rollout of Gender-Based Violence Information Management System (GBVIMS) in Humanitarian Settings in Lebanon

Type of News: News
Release Date: October 03, 2012
UNFPA Lebanon initiated in August 2012 an assessment coupled with a consultation process with the different GBV actors to analyze the situation, ensure the appropriateness of GBVIMS within the Lebanese context, and to obtain the buy-in of relevant actors in rolling it out. This process resulted in the following: a) there is no standardization in the definitions of GBV incident types; b) there is lack of common data points resulting in inconsistencies among organizations; c) service providers lack simple information management tools; and d) there is a need for training and resources for safe and ethical GBV information management. Based on the above, GBV actors agreed to pilot the rollout of the GBVIMS in North Lebanon, namely Akkar in response to displaced Syrian crisis. Akkar was selected as the pilot area because services are more available than in other parts of Lebanon hosting and/or catering for Syrian displaced.
