UNFPA has launched a free e-learning course for professionals who are working to address Gender Based Violence in humanitarian contexts. 

The e-learning course uses problems that practitioners currently face and case scenarios from real-life humanitarian contexts to guide learning. Integrated throughout the modules are videos, learning activities and quizzes that both engage the learner, and support participants’ varying learning styles. 

UNFPA has launched also a companion guide to its free e-learning course.This 146-page guide features the entire e-learning course transcript as well as new material, including: "Programmes in Focus" - illustrative examples of GBV programming in action; "Voices from the Field" - first-person accounts from practitioners like you who have experienced and implemented the concepts covered in the Course; and "Thinking Locally" - short segments that encourage you to consider how you would apply course concepts to your own context. We have also included additional case study questions that will allow you to explore the content more thoroughly. We hope you find this document useful for your work and that you continue to share your experiences using these tools with us at UNFPA.
