GBVIMS Steering Committee

The Gender-Based Violence Information Management System (GBVIMS) enables those providing services to GBV survivors to effectively and safely collect, store, analyze and share data related to the reported incidents of GBV. The GBVIMS includes:

  • GBV Classification Tool: provides definitions for a set of six core types of GBV that enables uniform terminology for GBV data collection. The tool uses a standardized process to reliably classify reported incidents of GBV by the core type of GBV that occurred.
  • Intake and Initial Assessment Form: ensures that all GBV actors using this standard intake form are collecting a common set of data points in a consistent format. The form allows for local and institutional customization.
  • Incident Recorder: an Excel database designed to simplify and improve data collection, compilation and analysis.
  • Inter-Agency Information Sharing Protocol Template: provides a framework to guide the creation of a customized Information Sharing Protocol based upon guiding principles on the safe & ethical sharing of GBV data and best-practice.
