January 2020 - With the Syria crisis in its ninth year, Jordan continues to host up to 1.3 million Syrian refugees in camps and host communities, of whom over 650,000 are registered. Additional populations of concern include 58,000 Iraqis, as well as a small number of unregistered refugees, including those from Yemen. Crisis-affected populations require continued assistance to address basic humanitarian and protection needs. With GAC’s support, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) is providing protection services and sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) support to refugees and vulnerable Jordanians. Project activities include: (1) providing sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) case management and focused psychosocial support services; (2) providing cash grants for especially vulnerable cases; (3) providing training to women community leadership groups; (4) conducting engagement sessions with men and boys on SGBV and harmful social norms; and (5) developing technical support plans with and for identified local actors.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased access of women and girls to protection, sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) case management and focused psychosocial support services; (2) SGBV survivors and women at risk receive cash for protection; (3) increased access of women and girls to sexual and reproductive health services (4) increased awareness of sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) issues, and SGBV risks and prevention among targeted communities, to support women, girls and other vulnerable populations to safely seek and access protection. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
