Gender-Based Violence: We All Can Help Improving the Health Sector's Response

This free four-course training series will help you to understand, identify, respond to, and address gender-based violence. As health sector workers, we all have a role to play in supporting those who have experienced or are living with gender-based violence.

You can take any one course on its own, or all of the 4 courses. (See below to register for courses individually).

Given how common gender-based violence is and the wide range of physical and mental health effects it has, everyone—from the bedside to the board room—has a role in responding to gender-based violence and addressing its impacts.

According to the World Health Organization, “a healthcare provider is likely to be the first professional contact for survivors of intimate partner violence or sexual assault,” two of the most common forms of gender-based violence.
