This guidance was created to assist service providers with limited resources to help them effectively and safely collect data reported by GBV survivors.
In some settings, it may not be realistic to roll out all four tools of the Gender‐Based Violence Information Management System (GBVIMS). In that case, service providers may choose to implement a limited version of the system. This would typically include the Gender‐Based Violence Classification Tool and the basic Intake and Consent Form. In these situations, the incident recorder can be implemented later on and data from the intake forms back‐entered. While an information sharing protocol may not always be easily established in these limited rollouts, it is encouraged that service providers begin discussions about information sharing from the outset.
