Report the Abuse Addressing Sexual Violence in Humanitarian Organisations: Good Practices for Improved Prevention Measures, Policies, and Procedures

Addressing sexual violence against humanitarian aid workers is a vital task, one that must be undertaken by all humanitarian organizations. In the past two years of operations, these organizations have repeatedly asked Report the Abuse for information and assistance on how they can do better to address sexual violence against their staff.

The first good practices tool to provide concrete and actionable information on how to improve prevention measures, policies, and procedures has finally been published. Report the Abuse encourages all humanitarian organizations to use this tool as a base for developing its own good practices, and to share the lessons learned from addressing the issue.

All humanitarian aid workers deserve safe and healthy workplaces, free from sexual violence. The process to creating this reality must start today.
