DFID has provided almost £2m for services relating to both sexual reproductive health and rights, and assistance for survivors of gender-based violence for Rohingya people. DFID has also deployed specialist expertise to support its own response and that of the wider international community in this area. This expertise includes the coordinator for the Gender-Based Violence sector in Cox’s Bazar and a Sexual Reproductive Health Coordinator, both working with UNFPA.
