“That Never Happens Here”
Red Cross, 2022
Sexual and gender-based violence against men, boys and/including lgbtiq+ persons in humanitarian settings.
The International Red Cross Red Crescent Movement’s approach to sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV) against men, boys and/including LGBTIQ+ persons in humanitarian settings. The Movement’s approach to SGBV is survivor-centred, holistic, and multi-sectoral, to meet the various and changing needs of victims/survivors across a range of humanitarian settings.
“Many humanitarian agencies not only overlook needs of females, but also completely overlook men, boys and sexual minority groups as sexual and gender-based violence survivors in their needs assessment, discussions with communities, during data collection and follow-up community-based and humanitarian response programming.”7
