#EndStigma:Tackling the stigma associated with survivors of sexual violence in conflict

Survivors can be ostracized from their communities, shunned by their families, denied justice and cut off from support networks. This can prevent community reconciliation and wider post-conflict stabilisation which is why the focus of the PSVI over the coming years will be on tackling the stigma that survivors face. We strongly encourage all members of the international community, including governments, international organisations, NGOs, faith, community and other civil society groups, to join us in this effort.
