This guide aims to bring together relevant standards, information, and regional experiences to support the planning and operation of gender-based violence hotlines in the Asia-Pacific region. Hotline planning requires thinking through a number of elements from a new perspective, including use of technology, documentation and data protection, and staff training and support.
Our training materials can be used to introduce a broad range of audiences and backgrounds to important concepts related to gender and health. Each training course focuses on one of five themes that complement the CORE Gender 101 agenda: Gender Integration, HIV + Sexuality, Safe Motherhood, Gender-Based Violence, and Constructive Male Engagement. The courses are designed to meet the geographic and technical needs of cooperating agencies, USAID Missions, and specific projects. Materials range from basics such as using a shared gender vocabulary and programmatic guidance, to user guides on how to conduct a gender analysis, to exercises for gender trainings. The trainings are geared to be used by anyone and with any audience, even those learning about gender for the first time!
Our popular Gender Integration Continuum framework is an important tool to assess how programs do (or do not) address gender and move them toward more gender-transformative actions. An updated User’s Guide for facilitating training on use of the continuum is available, along with other materials.

As the world continues to evolve and expand in the use of technology and platforms, so too does the expansion of spaces through which violence can be perpetrated. This paper serves as an alarm bell for the international community, digital and feminist movements, private technology companies, and national governments to act in unison to end the rising scourge of technology-facilitated gender-based violence.
This expert paper provides an overview of how climate change is exacerbating different types of gender-based violence (GBV). The paper also presents two recommendations to the Commission on the Status of Women community on how to respond to the climate change and GBV crisis: 1) leverage existing international policy frameworks and 2) support cross-sectoral partnerships.
The GWI’s Building Gender-Based Violence (GBV) Evidence program hosted the first in a four-part webinar series focused on gaps and opportunities around GBV research among conflict-affected displaced populations. The series covers the findings from a year-long process to map out the existing published evidence and illuminate key research gaps to identify those missing, what isn’t yet known, and how to expand approaches to research and evaluation of GBV.
When health providers are not well themselves, they are less likely to effectively help others. Addressing the mental health of health providers as they provide GBV services to survivors requires approaches that strengthen the mental health wellness and resiliency of both individuals and their communities. This blog provides an overview of the mental health effects of care work and GBV service provision on health providers, approaches to support self-care and improved health systems, and policy recommendations for the future.
