Following the 2017 publication of the Interagency GBV Case Management Guidelines, the GBVIMS Global Team invested in a capacity-building initiative to operationalize the guidelines: the GBV Case Management Capacity Building Initiative (GBV CM CBI). In 2017-2018, pilot projects were implemented in Bangladesh, Mali, Nigeria and Somalia to finalize and test the approach of the GBV CM CBI, as well as training materials and tools. Since September 2018 and thanks to funding from OFDA, more comprehensive rollouts of the GBV CM CBI have taken place in five target countries: Bangladesh, Central African Republic, Libya, Niger and Yemen.
The CM CBI also resulted in the development of a comprehensive CM-CBI Rollout Strategy And Toolkit. The Strategy and Toolkit is designed to act as a guide, or set of recommendations, for actors wishing to roll out the GBV Case Management Guidelines, and is informed by lessons learned from all eight implementations of the GBV CM CBI led by the GBVIMS Global Team.
