WASHINGTON, July 10, 2019 - The World Bank Group and the Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI) today announced a new open call for awards recognizing promising innovations aimed at preventing and responding to gender-based violence. Applications for the Development Marketplace: Innovations to Address Gender-Based Violence must be received online by September 13, 2019.
SVRI and the World Bank Group will distribute funding to advance evidence-based interventions to prevent and respond to gender-based violence (GBV) in low- and middle-income countries. An expert panel will select winners engaged in research, interventions, or other activities related to GBV prevention and response based on overall merit, research/project design and methods, significance, project team, and ethical considerations.

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates 35% of women worldwide have experienced physical or sexua..., a crisis of pandemic proportion. The costs of gender-based violence are substantial. Violence against women and girls impedes their full participation in society, limits access to education and economic participation, and hinders efforts to achieve gender equality broadly.
