Addressing disaster responders, this report provides best practices to address violence during and after disasters using a public health approach and encourages the prioritisation of preventing interpersonal and self-directed violence within the International Federation’s response to disasters. For violence prevention to be effectively integrated into practice and policy, it needs to include beneficiary accountability, leadership, gender perspectives, the involvement of children and youth, and integration into existing systems and tools, and should build in monitoring, evaluation and secure budgets.
