A global champion for women and girls, UN Women was established to accelerate progress on meeting their needs worldwide.

COPE OF WORK AND SPECIFIC TASKS
Violence against women and girls is the most prevalent form of rights violations and abuse globally; it is estimated that 1 in 3 women experience violence during their lifetime. Women and girls in Afghanistan face many protection risks and experience different forms of violence, including sexual violence. VAWG is exacerbated by periods of conflict, COVID19 pandemic and other emergencies, which erode the protective environment for women and girls. VAWG service seeking is mainly influenced by the accessibility of services and by the involvement of community mechanisms, which often hinder access to and consume time before reaching the desired benefits. Community attitudes towards survivors are largely negative; survivors face blame, discrimination and isolation. In light of these factors, VAWG survivors’ psychosocial well-being is gravely affected. Appropriate psychosocial interventions are crucial to promote the well-being of survivors and prevent more severe conditions.
Local and international NGOs that provide GBV/VAWG services in Afghanistan face challenges in identifying a unified Case management system that can respond to the survivors' needs. To address this gap, UN Women and the GBV Sub-Cluster will build the capacity of frontline staff to provide quality, culturally appropriate and survivor-centred VAWG/GBV case management services in Afghanistan.
In Afghanistan, like in all ongoing protracted humanitarian crises, many factors can exacerbate the risks of experiencing GBV/VAWG. These include—but are not limited to—increased militarization, lack of community and State protections, displacement, scarcity of essential resources, disruption of community services, changes in cultural and gender norms, disrupted relationships and weakened infrastructure.
Thriving through a nexus of uncertainties to reaching a proper context that can be adequate for the nation development that allows rebuilding the social fabrics and maintain accessibility to essential service for survivors of violence; there is growing recognition that affected populations experience various forms of GBV/VAWG during crisis and displacement and during and following return. Intimate partner violence is increasingly recognized as a critical concern during conflicts, natural disasters, and post-conflict situations, which is at the top priority for humanitarian and developmental actors in Afghanistan. Other forms of violence particular to adolescent girls have also emerged as especially necessary to address.
