This webinar recording highlights the reasons why anti-racism is an integral part of sexual violence prevention. The webinar is the second in a five-part web conference series that explored how the promotion of health equity translates into real-world prevention strategies and organizational policy by building the toolkits of practitioners and their organizations and offering explicit examples of people putting health equity concepts into practice.
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.
Migrants and women are among the groups that are at greater risk for and disproportionately affected by disasters. However, despite the large body of evidence that analyzes their vulnerability separately, disaster research that targets migrant women is scant. This scoping review aims to analyze the published scientific literature related to the vulnerability of migrant women and the consequent negative impact they experience during disasters.
UNFPA APRO developed tools for country offices and partners to strengthen gender-based violence (GBV) and disability inclusion programming, including a tip-sheet on disability inclusion in GBV programming and a GBV and disability inclusion assessment tool. The lessons learned from the implementation of the tools informed this documentation on promising practices and innovative approaches to disability inclusion in GBV programming adopted by UNFPA country offices and their partners in the Asia-Pacific region.
Household surveys, a principal source of data on violence against women and girls (VAWG), often underrepresent the extent of the problem due to the survivors’ shame, stigmatization, fear of consequences, and other barriers. This blog outlines a recent IFPRI discussion paper on a randomized experiment in Senegal comparing two methods of survey data collection on VAWG, showing that an anonymous approach yielded consistently higher reported levels of violence across a diverse set of VAWG indicators, as compared to in-person interviews.
