Crisis in Tigray: Gender Based Violence AOR

The crisis in the Tigray Region has resulted in protection risks and concerns that have heightened the vulnerability of women, girls, boys, and men. As of 24th May, 1,918,220 people have been identified as internally displaced throughout the Tigray Region, 52% of whom are women and girls (1). Continued fighting, insecurity, break-down of security systems and social services, involvement of multiple armed actors, critical humanitarian needs and dire living conditions have created a high-risk environment and forced displacement in which GBV is a widespread daily reality for women and girls.
