The UK is leading the way in supporting a range of organisations providing specialised help to women and survivors of sexual violence in Bangladesh. DFID funds the UNFPA and UNHCR who have local implementing partners, such as Brac and Mukti, who provide access to sexual and reproductive health care and support for survivors of gender-based violence for over 200,000 refugees. DFID works with UN agencies to incorporate refugee feedback and voice in the humanitarian response. The UK recognises the importance of including Rohingya leadership, especially women, in the humanitarian response and discussions on the future of the Rohingya people.
