Refugees & IDPs

In view of addressing gender-based violence (GBV) holistically, in 2009, UNRWA adopted a multisectoral approach informed by the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) Guidelines for GBV Interventions in Humanitarian Settings. Work on addressing GBV has focused on the building of referral systems in the five fields of UNRWA operations, including training staff, ensuring that survivors have access to internal as well as external services, and awareness-raising at the community level.
