WRC & IRC (2015) “I see that it is possible”: Building capacity for disability inclusion in gender-based violence programming.

Gender-based violence (GBV) is a widely recognized human rights and public health concern, affecting at least one in three women globally. GBV may become even more pervasive in crisis situations, where social, community and institutional protection mechanisms are often weakened or destroyed. Men and boys are also vulnerable to violence during conflict and displacement, particularly sexual violence, though to a lesser extent than women and girls.
