Increasing Access to Care and Healing for Gender-Based Violence Survivors: a Feasibility and Acceptability Study for InnovativeApproaches to GBV Case Management in Emergency Environments

Mobile and remote technology-based programming may be able to address key  gaps in service delivery for gender-based violence (GBV) in emergencies but little is known about  the feasibility and acceptability of these methods. The guidance aims to support donors and GBV practitioners to effectively resource and design quality mobile and remote technology-based programming for GBV Service Delivery.Mixed-methods data from individual interviews and focus group discussions in Iraq, Burundi, and Myanmar was collected in 2018.  

Findings  indicate that  mobile and remote  GBV service delivery  is feasible and acceptable  with beneficiaries across all  settings. From this, the IRC developed Guidelines for Mobile and Remote Gender-Based Violence Service Delivery.

The Airbel Impact Lab at IRC is a team of researchers, strategists and innovators committed to the accelerated design, rigorous evaluation and cost-effective scaling of the most impactful solutions supporting people affected by crisis.
