MINUSCA raises awareness on sexual exploitation and abuse among marginalized communities
7 Jan 2021 -  As part of efforts to address sexual exploitation and abuse by UN personnel, the UN peacekeeping mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA) teamed up with the Ministry of Women’s Affairs, Family and Child protection and local civil society groups to raise awareness in communities at risk. These include people who make ends meet through transactional sex. Participants aged 16 to 45 were able to understand the possibilities of redress for victims or witnesses of acts of sexual exploitation or abuse. Any form of transactional sex is strictly prohibited for United Nations personnel.
