Survivors

Although reliable data are not available, more than 1 million people a year are believed to be direct survivors of armed violence – people who have been shot, with potentially disabling results. Many millions more are affected by armed violence, through the trauma of losing a family member, or of being threatened at gunpoint (including armed domestic violence, and sexual violence against women, men and children).

In January 2012, we launched the IANSA Survivors Network to formalise an already existing network of campaigners and organisations working to promote survivors' rights and needs. More information about this network is available here: http://iansa.org/iansa-survivors-network
