The dashboard below is made of aggregated data about Gender Based Violence (GBV) reported by the GBV sub cluster members in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. Data is collected on GBV registered cases; cases treated; survivors’ profile; type of violence; and the services provision to the GBV survivors by different stakeholders on a quarterly basis. This system is meant to be used by humanitarian actors to save and analyze GBV incident data, and facilitate the safe and ethical sharing of GBV information with other local actors, including duty-bearers and decision-makers.
