What is gender-based violence?

 


 

GBV are directly linked to undernutrition

  • Increased stress, lack of basic needs, and disagreements on how household resources (such as food) are managed can increase forms of domestic violence;
  • Higher levels of food insecurity and hunger can lead women or men to exchange food for sex;
  • Survivors of GBV may experience physical, psychological, and emotional consequences that impact their consumption of healthy and nutritious foods.
