Within the framework of “PROTECT - Preventing sexual and gender-based violence against migrants and strengthening support to victims” regional project, IOM Budapest, in cooperation with Menedék - Hungarian Associations for Migrants, organized the first round of capacity-building trainings for professionals working with migrants in Budapest on the 04th of October 2019. The topics of the training included introduction to sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV), identification of SGBV victims, communication with vulnerable people and intercultural communication.

The training was organized following the objective of building capacity for professionals who work with and for refugees, migrants and asylum-seekers with the aim of identifying and addressing the needs of victims and potential victims of SGBV more effectively. Besides other activities carried out during the training session, an awareness raising video, which is part of information materials package of the project, was shown to the audience as well. IOM Budapest will continue to conduct a series of similar trainings for professionals (social workers, interpreters, healthcare professionals, etc) in the upcoming months within the framework of the project.
