UN Women, grounded in the vision of equality enshrined in the Charter of the United Nations, works for the elimination of discrimination against women and girls; the empowerment of women; and the achievement of equality between women and men as partners and beneficiaries of development, human rights, humanitarian action and peace and security.

This project will improve local and national health systems to enhance prevention, protection and attention to GBV, combating xenophobia and discrimination against migrant women, as well as addressing and transforming social and institutional tolerance to this problem, in the strategic corridor of Maicao, Barranquilla and Cartagena, as areas of reception of mixed migratory flows from Venezuela.

Supported by USAID, Colombia's Gender-Sensitive Response to Migration at the Border Activity will use the health sector as an entry point, which has been identified by the Humanitarian Country Team as the most pressing humanitarian need, to address the current lack of healthcare services provision to women victims of GBV by: i) supporting local Health Secretaries to update their health plans, allowing an integral response to the Venezuelan migrant women and girls victims of GBV; ii) ensuring that the information and registry systems include sex-disaggregated data and take into account the situation and needs of the Venezuelan population regarding GBV in such a way that they can guide the local health response to this problem; iii) facilitating focalized services provision to 4.000 women in Maicao, Barranquilla and Cartagena victims of GBV cases; iv) promoting in each location the creation and/or consolidation of mixed networks of social organizations working with Colombian and Venezuelan women towards GBV prevention, especially at the border area; and v) ensuring that each municipality has a strategy of cultural transformation, which promote new masculinities co-responsible for the eradication of GBV, reaching 15.000 local inhabitants to propel safe environments to vulnerable incoming population.
