SRGBV affects millions of children and young people, cutting across cultures, economies, peoples and practices. It constitutes a major barrier to children’s ability to learn and develop, and is correlated with lower academic achievement.

Ending school-related gender-based violence is a priority for countries wishing to achieve ambitious global goals on inclusive and quality education for all, good health and well-being and gender equality.

Published in December 2016, the Global Guidance on Addressing School-Related Gender-Based Violence aims to provide a comprehensive resource for addressing SRGBV for policymakers and practitioners. This global guidance was co-published by UNESCO and UN-Women and was developed in close collaboration with the Global Working Group to End SRGBV.
