QUT supported Oxfam International and community-based partners with data collection and analysis on gender-based violence (GBV) and sorcery accusation related violence (SARV). The organisations had collected case data since 2013 across Papua New Guinea (PNG). The purpose of this report is to inform the PNG government, NGOs, and service providers about GBV and SRV cases in the country drawing on comprehensive data collected across different regions over the 3-4 years. The report firstly reviews all cases combined for the purpose of an overall analysis. Secondly, the data from each organisation is provided in an organisational fact sheet. From the analysis emerge recommendations for the implementation of future programs addressing gender-based and sorcery related violence in PNG. As part of the project, an updated common data set collection tool and process was set up for future reporting purposes.
