From Syria to Nigeria and Colombia, women rescued from the horror of war face losing the services that in many cases have saved their lives
If the first victim of war is the truth, the second is often female. And the people who pick up the pieces are usually aid workers, as it is their health centres and “safe spaces” and camp programmes that help women to work through the trauma of loss, displacement and sexual violence.
Funding for this work quite often features the US government. US global health funding has topped $10bn in each of the past three years.
