Gender based violence (GBV), and in particular sexual violence, is a serious, life-threatening protection issue, primarily affecting women and children. The term GBV is an umbrella term for any physical, sexual, or psychological harm that is committed against a person as a result of power inequities that are based on gender roles.

The prevention reduction and elimination of the causes and contributing factors of GBV. As such, the GBV study of three universities in Afghanistan sought to identify the causes and contributing factors of GBV at universities in Afghanistan so that
greater prevention mechanisms within universities can be put in place.
