Help Us Build Digital Tools for Women Experiencing Intimate Partner Violence in Humanitarian Settings

The average time spent in a refugee camp is 17 years. For refugees experiencing intimate partner violence (IPV), this poses two unmistakable challenges: 1) Nowhere to go and 2) The inability to gain any positive traction--movement forward quickly backslides after new rounds of conflict or disasters.  More localized IPV strategies are urgently needed.

DHDI is working with community partners to address this gap via digital strategies targeting both men and women. Our current project focuses on mitigating the risks of IPV during pregnancy. But, we need your support to finish building digital IPV pregnancy tools for families. And we need your support to keep DHDI’s evidence-based tools open access to community-based organizations in humanitarian settings. As a small, independent not for profit, every single donation makes a huge difference.

Why You Should Help DHDI:

DHDI was launched recently as a response to evidence reflecting digital strategies are not shrinking health disparities but amplifying them in the most economically and socially marginalized communities. Specifically, where digital connectivity and access are improving for women, lower-income women are not just benefiting less, but differently than higher-income women.

The bottom line is that the digital revolution has delivered increased efficiency & productivity for industry actors & health systems but it’s delivered online health misinformation to marginalized communities. Help us recalibrate the balance of who is benefiting from the digital revolution. And help us prioritize intimate partner violence survivors in refugee and displaced communities.


Thank you for your support!
