How to Report

All personnel affiliated with the United Nations must uphold the highest standards of conduct. The United Nations takes all reports of wrongdoing by its staff or affiliated personnel seriously.

Sexual exploitation and abuse violate universally recognized international standards and harms the victim(s). Acts of sexual exploitation and sexual abuse are prohibited.

You are strongly encouraged to report in good faith any instances of sexual exploitation and abuse of which you become aware. Reports may be submitted anonymously, and information provided will be treated confidentially and will only be disclosed to those who have a legitimate need to know.

The United Nations mandates that all staff members or affiliated personnel report sexual exploitation and abuse. If you believe that you have experienced retaliation for reporting a concern about sexual exploitation and sexual abuse, this should also be reported.

To facilitate reporting, the logos of the different United Nations entity can be found below.

If you are not sure which entity the alleged perpetrator belongs to, please go to OIOS.

If you are reporting from a location where a United Nations field mission is based (i.e., BINUH, MINUSCA, MINUSMA, MONUSCO, UNIFIL, UNMISS, etc.), reports can be made directly to the respective mission’s Conduct and Discipline Team or Conduct and Discipline Focal Point, including through links for reporting forms on the mission’s intranet or internet sites. The link below is to the reporting form to be sent to the Conduct and Discipline Service (DMSPC) in New York. Reports received through this link will be redirected to the field mission or Secretariat entity concerned.
