Improved Mitigation of GBV Harms (Tertiary Prevention)

Action plans in response to the data and learning…

GHJRU will conduct research through focus groups utilising the GBV Forums, Technical Working Groups and Community Action Teams. The research will focus on other feasible interventions (non-formal/informal interventions), as well as on the “referral protocol.”

CCI will design capacity building activities and support the implementation of interventions based on the collective research findings from the key partners as well as the inputs of the GBV Forums on these research findings. The TWGs and CATs will be the conduit for the research process conducted to deliver the mapping and evaluation of services and resources for victims. Stemming from this, interventions, such as referral protocols and technical training (on community-led issues), will be implemented. As a starting point, the statutory duties on key stakeholders in terms of key GBV legislation has been identified.

This will generate action plans in response to the data and learning for the generation of a referral system in the TWGs and CATs and the GBV support and response protocol under the CR/SBCC TWGs/CATs team, for the integration of GBV services under this IR and IR4. The key impact in this IR will be the identification, and improved integration, of support and services for victims. The TWGs and CATs will be the driver for mapping victims’ experiences and needs, participating in, for example, the research and providing capacity building for community support services for other TWGs and CATs members, local Non Profit Organisations (NPOs) and government services. The TWGs and CATs and Victim Support Management Team will undergo training in the Victim Empowerment Policy of South Africa led by GHJRU, and mapping, barrier identification and evaluation process will be integrated in the qualitative studies conducted above to understand system efficiencies and gaps and opportunities for intervention.
