WOS Guidance note on GBV Prevention and Response to Older Women in Syria

This Guidance Note is addressed to GBV organisations implementing a prevention/response programme in
Syria. The Note aims to:

  • • Improve understanding of the specific vulnerabilities of older women, the barriers they face to access services and the need for inclusion and/or dedicated services;

• Underline older women’s resources and capacities, as well as existing community-based protection mechanisms to capitalise on;
• Encourage and support the GBV actors across Syria to adapt their GBV prevention and response programming to the needs of older women, including through sharing good practices.
