This presentation by Erin R. Kenny of UNFPA provides a very good overview of gender based violence (GBV) for those new to the topic. It defines basic terms, answers common questions, and provides some guidance on designing appropriate GBV prevention and response programs. An additional resource, a timeline covering the evolution of GBV programs in emergencies, is available here: Erin originally gave this presentation in a World Humanitarian Summit webinar on the subject of Gender Based Violence in Humanitarian Crises, hosted by Professionals in Humanitarian Assistance and Protection (PHAP), on August 6th, 2015. A recording of the full session is available here:
