ABAAD, supported by HIVOS, in partnership with MARSA Sexual Health Centre and the Syrian League for Citizenship, contributed to building an environment more conducive to the enhancement of Syrian refugee women and men’s well-being through improving community awareness on GBV and SRHR issues. This was done via disseminating knowledge, service provision, and advocacy. The success of the project was indicated by the resultant growing rates of women and men reporting SRHR needs and incidences of GBV.
Within the GBV sector, ABAAD is building the capacities of participating frontline workers on the themes of gender, GBV, and SRHR. This includes a series of trainings and workshops targeting field staff from different regions throughout Lebanon. Topics such as child marriage, GBV identification and referral, and caring for women survivors of GBV, among others, were addressed.
