PSEA at the Frontline
TOGETHER WE SAY NO
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.

A PSEA at the Frontline visibility package, including logos, banners, bags, stickers and more, has been designed and is available for use in your language to support launch events and roll-out of the communication materials.
The project materials were adapted from products developed by the Rooftop design agency in partnership with Habitat for Humanity International, Oxfam International and WaterAid, and made possible in part through the support of InterAction. We would like to thank them for the inspiration and access to these resources.
