Under-reported and under-addressed: Gender Based Violence among Rohingya refugees in Cox's Bazar

This report is the third publication by the International Rescue Commitee (IRC) on the incidence of gender-based violence (GBV) among Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh. Previous reports include The Shadow Pandemic: Gender-based violence among Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazar, Bangladesh (June 2020) and GBV Trends Among Rohingya Refugees in Cox’s Bazar: COVID-19 Update (January 2021). Using data collected from IRC’s Integrated Women’s Centres and integrated GBV-health programme sites across Cox’s Bazar, alongside evidence from interviews with IRC’s GBV case workers, this report offers two sets of findings. The first section provides the consolidated findings of IRC’s GBV screening data over a 24-month collection period, from 2019 – 2021, revealing the continuity of reported GBV rates in this time period. The second and third are the findings of both IRC GBV screening data and GBVIMS data from October 2020 – June 2021, showing the most recent trends in GBV reporting.
