In Nigeria since 2016, Premiere Urgence Internationale (PUI) has been responding to the needs of crisis-affected people in Borno State through a comprehensive integrated approach, targeting vulnerable people affected by the crisis. Premiere Urgence Internationale (PUI) is providing to the targeted people means of subsistence (Food Security and Livelihoods) and access to basic services (Nutrition, Primary Health Care as well as Mental Health and Psycho-social Support). Protection is mainstreamed throughout all the sectors of activities.
Gender-based violence (GBV) is one of the most widespread human rights abuses. Globally, one in three women will be raped, beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime. Though women and girls are overwhelmingly the targets of GBV, men and boys can also be subject to sexual violence, especially if they are perceived to be acting outside the prescribed social norms for males. As a result of the secondary impact of COVID19, cases of GBV has been reported to rise due to hardship faced by community members and IDPs. Premiere Urgence Internationale (PUI) has a responsibility to ensure the safety, dignity and right of persons at risk of GBV.
Due to high number of GBV cases identified on the field and the gap created as a result of limited case management actors, Premiere Urgence Internationale (PUI) plans to establish a specialized GBV program including CMR. This is aimed at complementing the effort and services of other actors in the field who are overwhelmed by the number of GBV cases referred by PUI protection teams. PUI GBV specialized service will include case management, clinical management of rape and psychosocial support services.
