Violence against women and girls (VAWG) is now recognised as a serious and widespread global health issue. During a humanitarian crisis, the risk of such violence is heightened, often continuing after the early phases of a crisis – reports of gender-based violence (GBV) are common in camps for refugees and displaced populations. However, there is limited evidence on how to provide effective response services to survivors of violence in humanitarian contexts.
What is this report about?
CBM in collaboration with the International Centre for Evidence in Disability at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, as well as the Kenyan Red Cross conducted a research study in the Horn of Africa crisis region about “Childhood Disability and Malnutrition in Turkana/Kenya”. The aim of the study was to assess whether children with disabilities were included within humanitarian and food security response programmes in Turkana, and whether there is an association between disability and malnutrition.
