Gender-based violence (GBV) disproportionately affects girls and women with disabilities worldwide. Timely and efficient GBV responses deter future GBV incidents, prevent fatal outcomes, and foster recovery from the physical and emotional damage caused by GBV. Data from our qualitative interviews of women with disabilities and GBV service providers identified collaboration as an essential component for strengthening the provision of comprehensive GBV services to women with disabilities. However, both women with disabilities and GBV service providers noted several hindrances to effective collaboration and suggested approaches for improving cross-sectoral collaboration.
