Research Priorities For Strengthening The Medicolegal Response To Sexual Violence In Eastern Central And Southern Africa A Briefing Paper

SVRI, & Liverpool VCT. (2008). Research priorities for strengthening the medicolegal response to sexual violence in Eastern, Central and Southern Africa. A briefing Paper. Pretoria: SVRI.

Abstract 

How do socio-cultural factors influence the use of medico-legal evidence? Does training to better collect and utilise evidence enhance the value of medico-legal evidence? What is the value and meaning of the medical forensic examination for survivors? In response to these gaps, and to promote evidence based programming, a regional workshop was organised by Liverpool VCT Care & Treatment (LVCT) and Sexual Violence Research Initiative. Workshop participants were asked to discuss in groups how and where we should focus limited research resources in order to ensure efforts to strengthen sectoral responses to sexual violence are evidence based. This brief provides you with an overview of these discussions.
