The UN and its partners in Myanmar have a zero-tolerance policy on sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA). This strategy affirms the commitment of the UN in Myanmar and partners to actively prevent and respond to incidents of SEA by staff and affiliated personnel. It is never acceptable for any person in a position of power to abuse their authority under any circumstances and especially against the most vulnerable. Acts of SEA undermine the credibility of the UN and its partners and breaches the principle of do no harm. The UN and its partners recognize their leadership responsibility to strengthen the fight against SEA in Myanmar in order to achieve a true system of collective accountability.

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.
