Protection, gender & inclusion

Our work ensures dignity, access, participation, and safety for all people, in a non-discriminatory and equitable manner.

Our work is driven by an understanding that violence, discrimination and exclusion are interlinked.

IFRC's Protection, Gender and Inclusion work happens before, during and after emergencies. We support National Societies' work through a team of specialists working at country and regional offices around the world to ensure our efforts are driven by local and national contexts.

We aim to strengthen inclusive structures and mechanisms in our offices and teams with equitable opportunities for people of all gender identities, backgrounds, physical appearances and disabilities. We work with PGI Champions, Community Based Organizations, protection actors, governments, regional bodies and UN partners.
