GBV Information Management
Data collection and analysis is the backbone of results-based programming. It is critical to the effectiveness of targeted service delivery, advocacy, policy development, and accountability and monitoring. While empirical data on the nature and prevalence of sexual and gender-based violence has increased in recent years, not enough information about GBV is available to the humanitarian community. Data is needed to inform programming and ensure progress. However, any data collection or sharing must strictly adhere to confidentiality requirements.
