The one-day event which held on Monday, 8th November 2021 at the CANS foundation. It allowed stakeholders to ask questions and seek clarifications on challenging aspects of the App. It also provided a means for stakeholders to discuss gender-based violence in Nigeria and how UNSUB could simplify case tracking and reporting of gender-based violence issues.
In attendance at the event were representatives of Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Education as a Vaccine, Gender response Aid, NHRC, Dorathy Njemanze Foundation amongst others.

UNSUB harnesses the technological drive of mobile apps and the global reach of web applications to achieve its set objectives of connecting gender-based violence survivors with stakeholders who can provide the needed help and intervention.
As an instrument in the fight against sexual and gender-based violence, UNSUB operates by providing an easy-to-navigate platform for survivors of SGBV as well as concerned third parties to report cases of SGBV for themselves or on behalf of survivors.
Through the platform, reporters are connected to a network of support providers called stakeholders working as SGBV-responders that have signed up to provide different categories of interventions/support on UNSUB. All this is done within a timeframe that can be tracked to ensure that cases are handled more efficiently, effectively, and timeously using technology.
