Nabro kala duwan ayaa ka soo baxo meesha tinta iyo madaxa iska galaan qeybta dambo ee madax, waxaa habboon in aad tustid takhtar maqaar si uu u arko nabarrada markay soo baxaan, dhowr cudur ayaa keeni karo in muddo intaa la eg ay nabro kaa soo baxaan kadibne ay laabtaan.

Su'aashaada labaad meesha aad tilmaantay ee soo kusuan, qadaadkane ku aadan, marmarne baaba'do marmarne soo kusuato oo daqnasho leh, carurutane u badan waa qanjirka qadaadaka ku jira uu bararan, waxyaabaha barariyane waxaa ka mid ah infakshan ku dhaca dhuunta, quumanka, dhegaha ama qoorta meel ka mid ah.

Waa calaamad lagu garto in caruurta ay jirkooda la dagaalamayaan jeermis u dhaw qanjirkaa bararan, haddii tusaale ahaan cunuggaaga qabo quumana soo noqnoqdo ama dhagaha ay dillaacsan yihiin wuu bararaa qanjirkaas.

Fadlan la xiriir takhtar caruurta ah si loogu qoro daawo lagula dagaallamo jeermiska.

Medical Jobs & Trainings / GBV Consultant - Garowe, Puntland (IOM)
« Last post by Dr.Mahdi on January 29, 2015, 01:56:06 PM »
Post/TitleGender/Gender-Based Violence (GBV) Consultant
Date of issue: 26th January 2015
Duty Station: Garowe, Puntland
Duration of Assignment February 2015 to March 2016
Deadline for applications: 6th Feb 2015

II. Background Information

****Summary****

Currently, access to medical services and assistance for victims and survivors of GBV in Somalia is limited. This includes access to PEP kits, post-rape care and clinical treatment, for example. Qualified medical personnel are lacking in number and psycho-social support service capacity is inadequate in Somalia. Altogether, these factors exacerbate the complexity of the situation. Furthermore, there is a marked lack of awareness on the definition of gender and the constitution of each gender’s role in society. Social, religious, traditional and cultural factors are at the very core of the issue thus it is vital that communities become sensitized in a manner that befits their way of life whilst simultaneously ensuring realization of human rights, justice delivery, protection and accessibility of services to assist survivors of GBV.

In light of this, IOM is taking the lead on a large-scale project funded by the European Union entitled, “Prevention of Child Trafficking and Gender-Based Violence (GBV) as well as Protection and Care for Victims in Somalia” in the selected regions of Bari, Nugaal, Mudug and Galgudud in Puntland. It is the hope of IOM that the objectives of this project will be achieved through working in close partnership with key groups including security officials, local authorities, policy-makers, immigration officers, journalists and affected communities.

About Puntland

Puntland—officially the Puntland State of Somalia—is a region in northeastern Somalia. It is bordered by Somaliland to its west, the Gulf of Aden in the north, the Indian Ocean in the southeast, the central Galmudug region of Somalia in the south, and Ethiopia in the southwest. Its leaders declared the territory a semi-autonomous state of the Federal Republic of Somalia in 1998. Since then, the Puntland Government has implemented limited reconstruction and development programs using its own resources, with some support from the donor community. The needs still remain enormous given that the government must build modern infrastructure, systems and structures to provide basic social services such as healthcare and education. The capital of Puntland is Garowe (Nugaal province), though the cities of Bosaso (Bari province) and Galkayo (Mudug province) are far more populous.

****About GBV in Somalia****

Gender-based violence (GBV) is a widespread and rapidly growing problem in Somalia. Scarcity of field data renders it particularly difficult to attain a clear and evidence-based situational analysis of activities occurring on the ground. Despite this, governments in Somalia, local authorities, civil society and the international community at large agree that GBV needs to meet an end.

Years of instability and conflict, ongoing outbreaks of violence in pockets of the different regions, displacement and common harmful traditional practices place women and girls under great risk of experiencing forms of GBV.

Typical examples of violations include rape, intimate partner violence (IPV), physical and sexual assault, psychological and emotional abuse, forced marriage, sexual exploitation, female genital mutilation (FGM) and denial of resources which may result in women and girls seeking dangerous forms of livelihood such as sex work, for example. Though conflict significantly increases the risk of GBV, deep-rooted cultural mentalities are at the absolute core of the issue, creating persistent inequalities between the two sexes. As a result of unequal power relations, women are at greater probability of victimization.

With regard to the justice system, three separate sources of law exist in Somalia which includes state law, xeer (customary or traditional law) and Shar’iah or Islamic law. Rather than making use of the formal judicial system, most victims (if they seek assistance) will be referred to Shar’iah law or xeer. Justice within these systems is not usually delivered in favor of the victims. In most cases, justice will be agreed upon by either the perpetrator or survivor’s male heads of household or guardians.

****About the Ministry of Women, Development and Family Affairs****

IOM is seeking a qualified Gender and/or Gender-Based Violence expert to be commissioned to provide comprehensive training to the Puntland Ministry of Women’s Development and Family Affairs’ (MOWDAFA) department of Gender-Based Violence.
