This information gateway provides access to information, resources, links and publications about victim assistance.

Victim assistance activities support landmine/ERW/cluster munitions survivors, their families and communities including survivors of other forms of armed violence and all persons with disabilities.

Contribute by sending resources and reports.

Victim assistance includes, but is not limited to, casualty data collection, emergency and continuing medical care, physical rehabilitation, psychological support and social & economic inclusion and reintegration, and laws and public policies to ensure the full and equal integration and participation of survivors, their families and communities in society.

Victim assistance is still most often found at the bottom of lists of mine action activities and programs: See ICBL: A promise not yet fulfilled
