Sudan National GBV SOPs English 2020

Gender-based violence (GBV) issues represent an essential component of the Sudanese society’s realities with interconnected reasons and factors that cut across cultural. Economic and social dimensions, in addition to the conflict that affects family and community stability, and explicitly exacerbating the suffering of women, girls, and children. The space occupied by programs and activities of prevention and response against GBV is of critical importance and urgency, as translated through coordination and cooperation activities between the partners and actors in this field. These Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for the prevention of and response to GBV represent an essential development to ensure the delivery of an integrated and high-quality system of services for survivors of GBV. At the same time, they adhere to the international best practice of preventing and responding to GBV to ensure the protection of women, girls, and children and safeguard their rights in cooperation with all partners in roles and responsibilities.

This document coincides with the critical political changes witnessed by Sudan. It is aligned with the state’s efforts to review policies related to women and children in general and the strategies related to GBV.
