Sexual violence in armed conflicts and other situations of violence has long been widespread, with grave and devastating consequences for victims and their communities. The Special Appeal begins by detailing the ICRC’s goals for 2013–16, the main objectives and expected results, then presents the content specific to the 2016 Special Appeal: (i) the ICRC headquarters’ plans of action and activities foreseen for 2016 that are directly related to sexual violence and (ii) nine operational cases to serve as examples of the ICRC’s work in the field to strengthen its response to sexual violence. The last section presents the budgets. The headquarters and operational sections are based on the ICRC Appeals 2016: Headquarters and ICRC Appeals 2016: Operations, published in November 2016. This Special Appeal aims to draw contributions, particularly from funding sources that usually do not or have not yet financed the ICRC on the basis of its yearly Headquarters and Operations appeals.
