The Violence, Prevention and Response Unit (VPRU) supports programming that prevents and responds to violence against women, children, and other vulnerable groups. Over the past 16 years, IRC has pioneered VPR programs in refugee settings and in other conflict-affected contexts, making it a global leader in this field. Today, IRC manages VPR programs across Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East. We leverage our expertise in women’s protection and empowerment, child protection and protection rule of law to address the complicated and deep-seated injustices that lead to violence. 

VPRU provides dynamic support and consultation to IRC’s country offices on VPR programming — including direct technical assistance to country staff, ensuring innovation, promotion of best practices, and improvements to information collection and analysis for all VPR programming implemented by the organization. VPRU also leads on Technical Innovations to advance the development and testing of innovative program approaches, to produce resources to support country teams and to generate evidence and learning around what works to prevent and respond to violence in humanitarian settings. The Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) team provides guidance and support to VPR programming, by taking a feminist approach in ensuring routine monitoring of performance, selective evaluation of contexts and programs, and iterative and continuous learning.
