Objective

The GBV subcluster of the Protection Cluster is chair by the Department of Women and Children (DWC), and co-lead by UNFPA. The GBV subcluster leads all efforts at national and district level to promote immediate prevention and response to gender based violence (GBV).  Using a survivor-centred and rights-based approach, the objective of the Sub-cluster is to develop effective and inclusive protection mechanisms that promote a coherent, comprehensive and coordinated approach to GBV at national and district level, including prevention, care, support, recovery, and efforts to hold perpetrators accountable.  These actions will be undertaken in line with the IASC GBV Guidelines and in accordance with relevant human rights laws and humanitarian principles, and will be informed by other relevant legal frameworks, including national laws that promote the rights and agency of women and children.
