Infographic: Child Marriage in Humanitarian Settings in Bangladesh and other South Asian Countries
The Women’s Refugee Commission conducted foundational research, providing some of the first robust evidence of the magnitude and drivers of child marriage across several humanitarian contexts.
This infographic features links to study results from Bangladesh and other South Asian countries, namely- Djibouti, Egypt, the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, Yemen , Nepal, Ethiopia, and Lebanon.
Learnings from these studies provide key recommendations for practitioners, researchers, and policymakers engaged in efforts to end child marriage and support the needs of married girls globally.
WRC, in partnership with the Johns Hopkins Center for Humanitarian Health, joined forces with a broad consortium of UN agencies, international NGOs, and academic institutions to examine the prevalence and drivers of child marriage in humanitarian contexts and inform prevention and risk mitigation programming.
