Sexual exploitation and abuse of the communities we serve is a grave violation of WHO's commitment to serve and protect the vulnerable. Sexual harassment of our workforce is a serious failure of our duty of care. WHO's leadership, staff and her Member States are deeply committed to accelerating our collective work on preventing and responding to sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment (PRSEAH). But we all know and acknowledge that more could and should be done. And done quickly.
The PRSEAH channel provides learning resources to strengthen competencies to prevent and respond to sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment. Learning and continuous learning are essential to capacitate personnel and our implementing partners to meet the standards set by WHO's policies and Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, as well as the requirements and expectations set by the United Nations system, the Inter-Agency Standing Committee and its partners.
