Supporting integrated care for survivors of gender-based violence with a virtual One Stop GBV center

Other Resources

In Benin, gender-based violence (GBV) survivors can access an integrated package of services, including medical and psychosocial care, by visiting one of the country’s One Stop GBV centers, located in the cities of Cotonou, Parakou, and Abomey. However, GBV survivors who live in other regions might be unable to access these services due to financial and other barriers. To address this gap and increasing GBV survivors’ access to care, the Direction de la Santé de la Mère et de l’Enfant (DSME), with technical input from IHSA, developed a model to provide integrated care for GBV survivors in areas not covered by the three existing One Stop centers.
