Call to Action on Protection from Gender-based Violence in Emergencies

The Call to Action on Protection from Gender-Based Violence in Emergencies (Call to Action) is a multi-stakeholder initiative launched in 2013 by the United Kingdom and Sweden that aims to fundamentally transform the way gender-based violence (GBV) is addressed in humanitarian emergencies. The Call to Action Road Map 2016–2020 is the operational framework for the initiative and is based on the collective action of governments, international organisations and non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

The Road Map (PDF) is available in the following languages: English, Arabic, French, Spanish
