Addressing Conflict-Related Sexual Violence Meaningfully

For free

Frequently and deliberately used as a weapon of war, conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV) has many devastating impacts. Survivors should be at the center of all preventative efforts and responses, such as medical care, psychosocial support, socio-economic support, physical protection, reporting, support to access justice and reparation systems. 

The survivor-centered approach requires respecting their rights, needs, and choices at all times, and avoiding retraumatization and stigma. States are responsible to provide these services to respond to CRSV, as well as to create and conduct preventive measures and to manage emerging risks.
