Gender-based Violence Mobile App in Humanitarian Settings

Digital Solutions for GBV Assessment, Incident Reporting and Referral

Synegys is supporting HHA Burundi, an NGO in Burundi to combat Gender-Based Violence (GBV) with an innovative mhealth solution – iGBV.

As a practical demonstration of our corporate values and philanthropic convictions, we are working with HHA Burundi to prevent and respond to GBV in low-and middle-income countries.

William Eng – Managing Director

Leveraging Synegys’ expertise in the areas of field workforce mobility and mobile health, the solution aims to standardise and optimise workflow – identifying survivors and linking them to GBV services. The screening process is scalable with trained non-professionals using iGBV. Each screening event will be captured electronically, with referral pathways managed and monitored by providers. As part of safety planning, iGBV will also be a decision aid for survivors, supporting informed decision-making related to safety. Using SMS technology, GBV incident data from remote areas can be shared with providers.

To understand the problem addressed by iGBV and how the mobile app can be applied, check out the video below.
