How you can make a difference:

UNFPA is the lead UN agency for delivering a world where every pregnancy is wanted, every childbirth is safe, and every young person’s potential is fulfilled. The Fund has operated globally since 1969 in more than 150 countries and territories. UNFPA focuses on women and young people because these are the groups whose rights are often compromised UNFPA has been active in Ukraine since 1997.

In accordance with the organisational mandate and national development priorities of Ukraine, UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, implements a country programme of technical assistance to Ukraine for 2018-2022. Among several priorities, the programme seeks to contribute to the development of a robust national system of response and prevention of domestic and gender-based violence (GBV), establish functional intersectoral coordination and accountability mechanisms and enhance institutional capacities at the national and regional levels to ensure that majority of gender-based violence survivors seek and have access to good quality survivor-centred services, and Ukrainian society finds GBV unacceptable.

Since the start of the large-scale military invasion of Russia to Ukraine in February 2022, UNFPA has implemented a comprehensive nationwide Humanitarian Response Plan to provide life-saving GBV and SRH services to women and girls across Ukraine.

Through its GBV Response and Prevention Programme, UNFPA contributes to improving the protection and security of women and girls, and thus, their willingness to participate in community life, including in war-affected communities. Women’s engagement and empowerment in community dialogue, including in displacement, is essential for laying a strong foundation for recovery and sustainable peace and development.

UNFPA is seeking highly-motivated candidates that share our passion for making a sound contribution to creating a Ukrainian society free from domestic and gender-based violence. We need strong professionals who innovate, transform, inspire and deliver high impact and sustained results.


Job Purpose:

Since 2015, UNFPA GBV Response and Prevention Programme strongly contributed to the development of the comprehensive national system for prevention and response to domestic and gender-based violence in Ukraine. It included support to national legal framework development, piloting models of specialised services for GBV survivors, enhancing the role of police in GBV response and setting up intersectoral response at national and community levels.

Following the successful completion of the previous phase, the current programme cycle, inter alia, focuses on knowledge sharing and scaling up of services across the country.

The UNFPA GBV Response and Prevention Programme interventions cover all regions of Ukraine and focus on the delivery of the following outcomes:


  1. Increased perception of the unacceptability of gender-based violence in Ukrainian society.
  2. Improved equitable access of GBV survivors and people at risk to survivor-centred services.
  3. Establishment of mechanisms of accountability to beneficiaries at the national and local levels.
