Overview

  • Standard operating procedures (SOPs) can be defined as specific procedures and agreements among relevant actors and stakeholders that outline the roles and responsibilities of each relevant actor in prevention of and response to VAWG (IASC Gender SWG, 2008). As such, SOPs should reflect and reinforce a plan of action to address violence against women and girls (IASC Gender SWG, 2008).  SOPs are particularly relevant when developing response programming as they establish guiding principles and standards for ethical, safe, and coordinated multi-sectoral service delivery.
