Britain's Department for International Development announced today will invest £5 million to prevent sexual violence and help survivors. This includes:

  • £4.25 million contribution to the UN Trust Fund on violence against women. This will expand their work and existing support services to help survivors of sexual violence
  • £750,000 for a pilot with the International Organisation for Migration to speed up the referral of survivors of sexual violence in refugee camps across the developing world to people with the right skills and expertise to help them
  • This new investment complements DFID’s existing programmes to address violence against women and girls in over 20 developing countries and substantial investment in research to understand how best to prevent violence against women and girls
