This week we have an exclusive in-depth interview focusing on sexual exploitation and abuse. The UN has described abuse allegations made against people serving the organization and others as "sickening" and has pledged thorough investigations while also offering support to victims.

In February this year, the UN Secretary-General appointed Jane Holl Lute as Special Coordinator on Improving the United Nations Response to Sexual Exploitation and Abuse.

In her first major interview since taking the post, Daniel Dickinson began by asking her how extensive the problem of abuse is.

Presenter: Daniel Dickinson
Production Assistant: Sandra Guy
Duration: 10’00″
