Building Capacity for Disability Inclusion in Gender-based Violence (GBV) Programming in Humanitarian Settings

Despite the scale and gravity of the problem, persons with disabilities in humanitarian settings are often excluded from programs and services designed to prevent and respond to GBV, due to the multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination they experience on the basis of both gender and disability. In response to this, the International Rescue Committee (IRC) and the Women’s Refugee Commission (WRC) conducted a project to identify these barriers to access, and to pilot and evaluate solutions for promoting disability inclusion in GBV programs in conflict-affected settings.
