USAID through Evidence2Action
SGBV Survivors Provided with Service
Schools Established SGBV Clubs
States Allocated Budget for SARCS
In nine states of Nigeria, the project supported 10 Sexual Assaults and Referral Centers (SARCs) to provide essential health services to survivors of Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV), sensitize the communities on SGBV and strengthened their capacity to solicit, administer, and manage funds. It also contributed to better understanding of SGBV in Nigeria by improving data management.
- Built the capacity of the health care providers in 10 SARCs and strengthened systems to enable the provision of quality services to survivors at the SARCs.
- Improved coordination among the multisectoral players and strengthened the referral and linkage systems to those institutions and services required by the survivors such as legal services, psychosocial services, safe homes, etc.
- Improved the organizational capacity of the SARCs in specific capacity areas (strategic planning, program improvement, organization culture of sharing, monitoring and evaluation, governance, partnership, finance, sustainability, and human resources) to ensure efficiency and continuity of interventions.
- Carried out community sensitization and awareness campaigns to encourage prevention of GBV.
