La Chronique N°134 – March 2020
Find out in La Chronique of March 2020, our report on gender inequalities in the face of humanitarian crises.
Women and girls are the main victims. In the vast majority of our interventions, they are therefore much more exposed to risk. “They are more vulnerable to exploitation and we find that they are sometimes forced to resort to survival sex in order to support themselves and their families,” explains Laura Callot point of contact for protection and gender for Première Urgence Internationale.
In emergency situations, it is important for the Premiere Urgence Internationales’s teams to consider all specific points. In fact, taking gender into account in the same way as other criteria, such as a person’s age or social situation, helps to better identify the needs of a population. Men and women are all affected, but in a different way.
