Taking Policy to Action Against GBV: GBV, Policy Implementation, and International Development (Brief)
Full Document (pdf 285.3 kb)
This concept note on policy implementation and gender-based violence (GBV) is intended to inform a vision and action agenda for USAID and other international health and development support mechanisms. This brief addresses the question of how such mechanisms can assist governments and communities to take action on GBV while supporting local ownership in accordance with the Global Health Initiative, U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, and other international and national commitments.
The brief also reflects understanding gained through five years of policy implementation work on GBV and stigma and discrimination under the USAID | Health Policy Initiative—work focused on anchoring the response to reproductive health and HIV issues in the community to achieve comprehensive, effective, and sustainable solutions.
