The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), International Medical Corps, and Human Rights Education Associates (HREA) are offering a five-day training course on Managing Gender-Based Violence Programs in Emergencies.

The aim of the program is to build both technical knowledge of gender-based violence (GBV) and practical skills in program design and management by funding from the U.S. Department of State, Bureau for Population, Refugees, and Migration. The course will provide participants with hands-on, practical skills that field practitioners can use to design and manage their programs, with the ultimate aim of expanding and strengthening the pool of skilled professionals working in the field of GBV programming.

This course builds on the Managing Gender-based Violence Programs in Emergencies e-learning course.

  • GBV and other sectors—health, psychosocial, security, justice/rule of law.

Benefits

  • Participants who successfully complete the training will receive a Certificate of Completion, issued by UNFPA and International Medical Corps.
  • Costs associated with attendance at this course will be covered by the workshop organizers, to include: airfare, lodging, transportation between the airport and the workshop site, and meals. As this is a residential course, all participants are expected to stay at the workshop venue.
