PSEA at the Frontline


PSEA at the Frontline


The “PSEA at the Frontline” initiative is aimed at providing frontline workers and partners with critical knowledge on protection from sexual exploitation and abuse (PSEA) through a dedicated package of simplified communication material in highly illustrated print, audio and multimedia formats currently available in 22 languages. Briefing Note available in EN, FR, SP and AR.

The initiative, developed by the World Food Programme (WFP) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in partnership with Translators without Borders (TWB), targets frontline workers who play a key role within assistance programmes and interact with beneficiaries and community populations on a daily basis, including: Drivers & Security Guards, Enumerators, Translators, Aid Distributors, Financial service providers and other contractors. Under the tagline “Together We Say No”, the initiative aims to help them to identify and report sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) as well as become strategic allies in its prevention.

The materials were developed based on feedback received from over 3000 frontline humanitarian workers in over 80 countries. Extensive field testing of the materials was also carried out in five countries: Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Colombia, South Sudan, and Turkey.

All communication materials are available to IASC members and PSEA stakeholders for their use.

We would like to thank them for the inspiration and access to these resources.


Sexual exploitation and abuse represents a catastrophic failure of protection. It brings harm to those whom we are mandated to protect.

The Inter-Agency Standing Committee is working to scale up protection from sexual exploitation and abuse across humanitarian response efforts. This website and global dashboard has been developed and managed through the support of UNICEF. It is dedicated to providing technical support and resources to practitioners, and to tracking inter-agency, collective progress across countries with a humanitarian response.
