MEDA recognizes our obligation and responsibility to operate in a manner consistent with the fundamental principles of human rights and we are committed to the prevention of and response to sexual exploitation and abuse. MEDA recognises that sexual exploitation and abuse of vulnerable people is a global phenomenon and from our own and others’ experience, it is clear that working in development can entail dealing with these issues. It is vital that sexual exploitation and abuse are not perpetrated or compounded by those who MEDA employs. It is crucial that we all understand the problem of sexual exploitation and abuse and our own role and responsibility in preventing it. Employees need to consider how their sexual conduct might cause serious harm to others and bring MEDA into disrepute.
This document outlines MEDA’s Child & Youth Safeguarding Policy which illustrates MEDA’s commitment to support and respect child and youth rights to be protected from violence and abuse.
