COVID-19: INCLUSIVE PROGRAMMING – ENSURING ASSISTANCE AND PROTECTION ADDRESSES THE NEEDS OF MARGINALIZED AND AT-RISK PEOPLE
This paper brings together guidance and messages from the
ICRC’s Operations Diversity Inclusion, Sexual Violence and Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse teams, in collaboration with the Global Adviser on Children. Its purpose is to support the ICRC’s delegations and métiers in their response to COVID-19. The guidance focuses on the initial phases of the response, including contingency planning, adapting and possibly scaling back current activities and strengthening and establishing new activities and partnerships to respond to the virus in the humanitarian contexts in which it works.
