We have a collective responsibility to act. Sexual exploitation and abuse are some of the most serious breaches of humanitarian accountability and the “do no harm” principle. The ICRC is committed to an institutional culture of trust and integrity that prevents and addresses sexual misconduct of any kind. This poster is part of the ICRC’s accountability towards affected people and overall prevention and response to sexual misconduct.
Help communities report their concerns. Sexual exploitation and abuse erode the confidence and trust of affected communities. They may be particularly vulnerable if they do not know what their rights are, do not know what behavior to expect from humanitarian workers or know how to complain if they have concerns. We want affected communities to know about our commitment and how to report their concerns and, by using this poster and other communication channels, you can help them to do so.
