As part of MOMENTUM’s efforts to prevent and mitigate the consequences of violence against women and girls and possible drivers of child, early, and forced marriage, this mapping exercise aimed to identify, enumerate, and map existing survivor-centered gender-based violence (GBV) services, determine the readiness of facilities to provide quality services across sectors, and assess capacities of service providers.
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.
This report shares findings from International Alert’s research in Kyrgyzstan, Nepal, Nigeria, and the Philippines, which found that peacebuilding was compromised by restrictive patriarchal understandings of gender roles. Each of these countries has developed national action plans on UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on women, peace, and security, yet each has struggled to promote meaningful and sustainable gender equality due to lack of programming that transforms discriminatory gender norms.
This report contains an overview and concrete recommendations to take up the main findings of four UNDP pilots funded by the Republic of Korea to gather evidence about what works to integrate a "gender-based violence (GBV) lens" into broader development interventions with the aim to prevent and respond to GBV.
In 2021-2022, UNFPA in the Philippines introduced the Cash for Maternal Health Emergency Fund—designed to facilitate safe pregnancy and delivery—in the conflict-affected Maguindanao province.

This report synthesizes findings and lessons learned from interviews conducted with leading experts working on self-care and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) in humanitarian, fragile, and stable settings, including program implementers, researchers, donors, and more. The report describes the current landscape of SRH self-care in humanitarian and fragile settings and aims to inform an ambitious new agenda for the self-care movement for the world’s most vulnerable populations.
Based on a scoping study, this paper offers a landscape scan highlighting what is known about technology-facilitated violence against women, who is currently generating this knowledge, and how the evidence is being produced. The paper also highlights some of the related methodological, ethical, and sociopolitical challenges to collecting data on technology-facilitated violence against women.
