Each one of us knows at least one woman who has suffered violence, and at least one man who has caused violence to a woman. Eliminating is a task for all of us.

When it's a matter of life or death, the nearest place of refuge is often the only choice. 3 in 4 people who have been forced to flee seek refuge in neighbouring countries.

Psycho-social support, specialized health services and safe shelters are lifesaving services for refugee women and girls. They must be maintained as essential during COVID-19 lockdowns.

Violence against women and girls is on the rise as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic drives more refugees into poverty. We must work even harder to end gender-based violence.

As COVID-19 drives millions of refugees and displaced people further into poverty we are extremely worried about rising violence against women and girls. We must all work together to prevent and end gender-based violence.

All acts of violence in Afghanistan are horrible but yesterday’s attack in Bamyan, which killed civilians in a peaceful, tolerant city is especially despicable and must be condemned with utmost force. My solidarity with the courageous people of Bamyan at this terrible time.

The displacement of Afghans is one of the longest the world has seen. 40 years on, the world can't look away from Afghanistan.
