Assessing the quality of the health system response to GBV in Emergencies: Piloting an adapted GBV quality assurance tool in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq and Northeastern Nigeria
WHO is working to strengthen the capacity, readiness and quality of health services to address GBV in its own emergency work and within the Global Health Cluster. This project is a quality assessment/quality improvement initiative to strengthen existing health services for GBV survivors in humanitarian settings.
An interdisciplinary team of WHO, JHU and in-country collaborators will use mixed methods approaches to:
1) examine capacity, readiness and quality of health services in selected facilities;
2) adapt existing GBV Service Readiness Assessment/Quality Assurance Tools for humanitarian settings;
3) examine facilitators, barriers, and bottlenecks to access and provision of quality care for GBV survivors;
4) provide an adapted GBV Service Readiness Assessment/Quality Assurance Tool for implementation in humanitarian settings.
