EMERGENCY RESPONSE                   

Year of establishment: 2012        

 

Objectives

Reducing the risks of gender-based violence through improving the quality of multi-sectoral assistance for women and girls survivors or at risk of GBV among host and Syrian refugee populations.

Brief Description of the Programme 

The programme was launched in early 2013 to respond to the growing gender-based violence, child protection, and sexual and reproductive health needs in Lebanon that have been exacerbated due to the emergency situation resulting from the Syrian crisis.

The programme carries out prevention and emergency response services related to GBV, CP, and SRHR in emergencies via working on different levels:

  • Improving the skills of the health and the legal sectors to improve crucial clinical management of rape services provided to sexual assault survivors residing in Lebanon;
  • Community activities that aim to empower women and girls;
  • Strengthening the referral pathway in the GBV sector;
  • Building the capacities of GBV and CP service providers through coordinating with different local and international NGOs and agencies;  
  • Raising awareness through activities for individuals and the general community.

Under this programme, ABAAD has also launched eight model centers that act as Women and Girls Safe Spaces (WGSS) that provide holistic care throughout Lebanon in partnership with UNICEF and the Lebanese Ministry of Social Affairs.
