Addressing Gender-based Violence

Gender-based violence (GBV) refers to any harmful act against an individual or group based upon their sexual or gender identity. Disproportionately affecting women and girls, GBV can include sexual, physical, mental and economic harm carried out in public or in private. Although GBV can occur at any point in a person’s life, the risk increases considerably during humanitarian crises.

Alongside the Corus International family of organizations, Lutheran World Relief addresses GBV through a three-pronged approach: prevention, mitigation and response.
