The National Council of Women (GB) calls upon HMG to:
(a) recognise the prevalence of rape of women and children in post-disaster and post-conflict situations;
(b) recognise the serious effects of rape on the physical and mental health and future well-being of rape victims;
(c) make the protection of women and children from rape and all other forms of sexual abuse as high a priority as the provision of food and medical assistance in post-disaster and post-conflict situations;
(d) make the education of men in the consequences of rape and other forms of sexual violence an integral part of the training of military and UN personnel.
