IMC: Support to victims of GBV

Activity Description: 

In collaboration with local gender-based violence (GBV) partners, International Medical Corps is working to increase the capacity of outreach workers to detect GBV and domestic violence cases, to create a safe place for the survivors of such abuse, and to promote gender equality and female participation within both refugee and host communities. In June, International Medical Corps’ mental health team opened two community centers, in the North and central Bekaa, where, in addition to psychosocial supports, protection and GBV programs will be implemented.
