Reports on Gender-based Violence

This minimum level of care should be available from the earliest stages of a humanitarian crisis.

In the lead article, “Refugee Women: Twenty Years On,” Buscher describes progress made since UNHCR released its first Policy on Refugee Women in 1990, including in the areas of reproductive health and gender-based violence, and outlines issues that require further attention, such as the gap between knowledge and practice, and the protection risks women continue to face in camps.
