Information Gateway

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

Victim assistance covers a set of obligations and commitments made to address the needs and rights of landmine, explosive remnants, cluster munitions survivors and other people with disabilities or injured by weapons.

In practice, victim assistance addresses the overlapping and interconnected needs of persons with disabilities, including survivors of landmines, cluster munitions, ERW, and other weapons, as well as people in their communities with similar requirements for assistance. In addition, some victim assistance efforts reach family members and other people in the communities of those people who have been killed or have suffered trauma, loss, or other harm due to landmines and ERW.

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