Building Capacity for Disability Inclusion in Gender-based Violence (GBV) Programming in Humanitarian Settings

Leora Ward, Emma Pearce, Dale Buscher et al., Eds.: Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) and The International Rescue Committee (IRC), (2015)

Women and girls with mental and intellectual disabilities were perceived to be most at risk of sexual violence, and family and service providers may only become aware of sexual violence against them when they become pregnant. Discrimination by GBV service providers, family and community members was the most common barrier to access. Inadequate transportation and inappropriate communication approaches were also common impediments. On this website you can download the report in different languages,

I See That It Is Possible - Gender-based Violence Disability Toolkit

Women's Refugee Commissio, et al., (2015)

This toolkit is intended to support GBV staff to build disability inclusion into their work, and to strengthen the capacity of GBV practitioners to use a survivor-centered approach when providing services to survivors with disabilities. The tools are designed to complement existing guidelines, protocols and tools for GBV prevention and response, and should not be used in isolation from these. GBV practitioners are encouraged to adapt the tools to their individual programs and contexts, and to integrate pieces into standard GBV tools and resources.
