A Guide for ‘Safe YOU’ mobile app stakeholders to Create GBV-related Digital Content and Safeguard Women and Adolescent Girls from GBV
The guidance note ‘A Guide for ‘Safe YOU’ mobile app stakeholders to Create GBV-related Digital Content and Safeguard Women and Adolescent Girls from GBV’ has been developed to provide developers and partners of the Safe YOU Mobile App with the knowledge necessary to create and improve digital content related to GBV including reference tools. The guide recommends cyber security measures for Safe YOU app users, considers ethical issues related to information security, and offers tips to mobilize more women and adolescent girls to use the app.
Safe YOU is a technology-based innovation created in 2018 for the safety of women and adolescent girls that aims to prevent and respond to GBV. It is compatible with iOS and Android systems.
The guide will strengthen Safe YOU and its technological potential to combat GBV by addressing content generation challenges. It provides guidance to participating partners and to technical and content developers on (a) creating additional topics to increase the diversity of Safe YOU content, (b) creating engaging digital content on GBV prevention, response and protection, and (c) creating safe online spaces for women and girls (including within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic and future crisis situations).
The guide has been produced by UN Women and UNICEF under the joint UN project ‘Accelerating Women’s Empowerment for Economic Resilience and Renewal: The post-COVID-19 reboot in Armenia’, implemented by UNDP, UNIDO, UNICEF and UN Women.
