The Gender-Based Violence Sub-Cluster (GBV SC), co-chaired by UNFPA and Global Communities, is a coordinating body with the objective to reduce risks and mitigate consequences of GBV experienced by women, girls, boys and men in Syria. It works to facilitate multi-sectoral, inter-agency action aimed to prevent GBV and to ensure a principled approach to the provision of accessible, prompt, and survivor-centered services to survivors of GBV. The GBV SC focuses on populations affected by the armed conflict in Syria reachable though cross-border operations from Turkey.

The GBV SC ensures, in coordination with the Protection Cluster (PC) and Whole of Syria GBV AoR, the integration of GBV prevention, mitigation and response in the multi-sectoral humanitarian response. It is currently comprised of approximately 60 active members, 90% of which are local Syrian NGOs.

The GBV SC Coordinator will be a member of the Global Communities’ team based in Turkey and operating cross border in Syria. This position will be fully dedicated to coordinate, together with the UNFPA hosted coordinator, the GBV SC, with humanitarian partners through cluster coordination mechanisms. The GBV SC Coordinator will drive coordination of GBV humanitarian response, development of documentation and structures for the GBV SC, development of technical guidance to support the quality of GBV prevention and response.
