As part of the National Strategic Action Plan to End Violence Against Women and Girls, the Directorate of Gender Affairs (DoGA) developed a National Electronic Gender‐Based and Sexual Violence (GBSV) Database to capture, store, and analyze data and statistics on cases of GBSV. The system allows the Directorate of Gender Affairs (DoGA) and its stakeholders to input standard information obtained during the client intake process and allows for robust case management. Referrals to other organizations can also be made through the system. The system employs siloed data management along with data encryption to ensure confidentiality, and also offers data analysis capabilities which aggregates fully anonymized case data to perform macro‐analysis of the demographics, time periods, and nature of recorded incidents. These statistics form the basis of the DoGA internal reports and are the foundation of initiatives and programmes implemented by the Directorate.
