Manual on Prevention and Response to Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA) – Canadian Red Cross

“This Manual aims to support Red Cross and Red Crescent leadership, headquarters and personnel in field operations, helping them understand just how important it is to both prevent and respond to sexual exploitation and abuse. It also incorporates practical solutions that adhere to minimum standards in line with the Inter-agency Standing Committee Minimum Operating Standards on PSEA (IASC MOS-PSEA).”

“It is mostly geared towards individuals within National Societies and Red Cross and Red Crescent humanitarian response who do not have specific expertise in PSEA. With the right guidance, such non-PSEA specialists can play a key part in helping reduce the risk of sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) for affected populations and colleagues by, for example, taking on the role of a PSEA officer or acting as a focal point. Some areas of the Manual, however are flagged up as warranting specialist expertise (for example, HR, trained protection or professional investigator) in order for it to be implemented.”
