Sexual and Gender-Based Violence Good Practices from Colombia

Since 2016, the Colombian Red Cross together with Norwegian Red Cross, has implemented a sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) project in
Tumaco, Colombia, focusing on health response, awareness and improved coordination to ensure access to services for survivors.

Based on the needs assessment and building on NorCross’ and CRC’s previous engagement in the municipality, Tumaco was identified as a priority area. Initially, the project had three components: health, awareness, and institutional coordination, in addition to capacity-building of the CRC. Income-generation was later included as an additional component to support survivors.
