Media Guidelines for Reporting on Gender-Based Violence in Humanitarian Contexts

This media guide for reporters or civilian journalists seeks to offer support for reporting on GBV in humanitarian, or emergency, contexts. It is intended to ensure that survivors of GBV are not put in danger or caused any further suffering by well-intentioned attempts to share their stories. By following these guidelines, reporters and media agents should be able to prioritize the ethical and safety considerations that preserve the safety, confidentiality, and dignity of survivors, their families, their communities, and those who are trying to help them.
