Standards for the provision of high quality post-violence care in health facilities

This Gender-Based Violence (GBV) Quality Assurance Tool offers health care providers, facilities, and program planners a straightforward way to start, strengthen or expand post-GBV health services through the use of evidence-based standards. It was developed by Jhpiego, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), with reviews and input from gender/GBV partners at the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), an array of international organizations, GBV health providers and ministries of health. The Tool was originally developed by Jhpiego Mozambique with providers and program planners and has been adapted, piloted and refined in several low and middle-income countries. It is informed by the WHO guidelines and tools for the health sector response to violence against women and is an additional tool to support their implementation.
