The IGWG organizes regular in-person and virtual events where members from around the world can learn from and connect with each other. These events may be thematic, such as a focus on recent research in the GBV field, or dedicated to capacity strengthening, such as integrating participatory and inclusive evaluation and learning methods in gender transformative global health programming. Our annual IGWG Plenary creates space for members to meet in person and provide feedback on the network as a whole each year.

Presentations and recordings of IGWG events are available online so you can find past events you missed or want to revisit. The presentation materials are also available.

GBV Task Force

During the last 16 Days of Activism, on Dec. 4, 2014, the IGWG GBV Task Force launched the first of an ongoing  series to explore the current state of research and practice on screening and responding to GBV in health care settings.  The Dec. 4 panel focused on “Setting the Stage: Asking Women about Violence and Responding Within Health Care Settings.”

The second panel, held on March 31, featured three speakers who shared their lessons and research/evaluation data from training health care providers to screen for GBV.

Panelists included:

  • Fabio Verani, Senior Technical Advisor, Gender/Men As Partners, EngenderHealth, on a pilot to train health care providers in Guinea (PDF: 944 KB);
