The Special Appeal 2019 is in line with the ICRC’s commitment to consolidate and enhance its efforts to prevent sexual violence in armed conflict, other situations of violence, and detention, and respond to the consequences of such abuse. This document begins by describing the problem, the applicable legal frameworks, and the consequences to victims/ survivors of sexual violence and their communities. This is followed by the ICRC's approach and key areas of its response and prevention efforts; the activities that will be carried out at headquarters for 2019; activities planned by the 14 field delegations for 2019, which provide concrete examples of the ICRC's response and prevention efforts; and information on the corresponding budgets. With the Special Appeal 2019, the ICRC seeks CHF 26.9 million. These funding requirements cover the activities the ICRC will carry out at headquarters and by its delegations in Bangladesh, Burundi, Caracas (regional), the Central African Republic, Colombia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Jakarta (regional), Mali, Mexico City (regional), Nigeria, South Sudan, Suva (regional), and Syrian Arab Republic.
