International Medical Corps first mobilized its Emergency Response Team (ERT) in Myanmar in 2008 to respond to Cyclone Nargis, reaching 45,000 cyclone survivors with emergency relief supplies. International Medical Corps re-entered the country in 2014 to respond to the protracted political and ethnic conflict that has displaced 100,000 people. The team is providing support in gender-based violence (GBV) services because women and girls are at a heightened risk of rape, trafficking, forced marriage and domestic violence in such a crisis. GBV is widespread and life threatening in times of peace and even more in times of conflict and displacement. Today, International Medical Corps is leading successful gender-based violence (GBV) programs, strengthening the protective environment for women and girls and ultimately promoting recovery in these conflict zones.
