Describes how the needs of women and men differ in the midst of disasters, and how best to serve those needs.

The IASC Guidelines for Gender-based Violence Interventions in Humanitarian Settings serve as a complement to this handbook and should be used in conjunction with it. The GBV Guidelines provide humanitarian actors with a set of minimum interventions in all sectors to prevent and respond to gender-based violence.
