Violence against women and girls takes many forms and is amplified in times of conflict and crisis. From domestic violence and sexual assault to isolation and economic exclusion that leads to survival sex, the threats to women and girls in emergencies demand proactive efforts to reduce violence. Survivors of violence deserve high quality services and support. This is the bedrock of the IRC approach. The opportunity to access immediate life-saving medical care, psychosocial resources, and case management services is absolutely critical to the recovery and healing process.
