QUICK ESCAPE FROM SITE

Overview

  • Efforts to prevent violence against women and girls in conflict-affected settings must be mainstreamed throughout all relevant humanitarian clusters/sectors in order to be effective.  Areas such as shelter planning, food distribution, water and sanitation, non-food items, health, education, and early recovery present important opportunities – when planned properly and with the full participation of women and girls – to address safety risks and ensure the security of women and girls.
  • In addition to the information provided in the tip sheets, further work has been done on mainstreaming prevention efforts into several key areas of humanitarian response.  The information below highlights some of the key points in this additional guidance.
