Efforts to prevent and mitigate gender-based violence (GBV) should be a priority for all actors in all humanitarian response operations from the very start. GBV specialists lead interventions to address the consequences of GBV after it has happened. By mainstreaming GBV considerations in cash and voucher assistance (CVA) throughout the program cycle and by utilizing CVA within GBV case management services, where appropriate, CVA can be optimized as a tool to enhance the protection of crisis- and conflict-affected populations and to mitigate risks of recurrent violence, to promote recovery, and to build resilience.
