|How to Guide - Reproductive Health in Refugee Situations - Monitoring and Evaluation of Sexual Gender Violence Programmes (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) / Alto Comisionado de Naciones Unidas para los Refugiados (ACNUR), 2000, 66 p.)|
In Tanzania, multi-sectoral activities for prevention and response to SGV are being funded by UNHCR (UN Foundation - Ted Turner) in 1999 and 2000. Before this initiative, SGV counselling and health care services were provided by an international NGO in four camps. The UN Foundation funds are being used to augment existing services and expand the programme to include UNHCR staff in all sectors working with eight NGOs along with host government police, courts, the refugee affairs ministry and all 11 refugee communities in the four districts of Western Tanzania.
In January 2000, UNHCR sent a consultant to Tanzania for three months to provide technical assistance to support and facilitate the development of a monitoring system for sexual and gender violence to be used in the field, including reporting, data collection and analysis.
