Since July 2022, Papua New Guinea's Highlands region has been witnessing multiple incidents of election-related violence, causing a slew of negative consequences, including loss of human lives, destruction of property, and population displacement. In this context, women and girls have become more vulnerable to Gender-based Violence (GBV), and a number of communities have reported incidents of GBV following the displacement.

Co-led by the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the National Disaster Centre (NDC), the Camp Coordination and Camp Management, Shelter and Non-Food Items cluster deployed the Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) rapid assessment tool (October - November 2022) with the support of local authorities and partners and collected data on the situation of persons displaced by election-related violence in Hela, Southern Highlands, Jiwaka and Eastern Highlands provinces.
