Ajema, C., & Valai, M. (2008). Workshop report on medico-legal responses to sexual violence, strengthening the medico-legal response to sexual violence through multi disciplinary collaboration among organizations and partners in Eastern, Central and Southern Africa. Nairobi, Kenya. LVCT, SVRI. 2-6 June 2008. 

Abstract

In Africa, there have been myriad responses to sexual violence in legislation and health sector policy. There is little focus on medico-legal linkages that are critical for comprehensive delivery of service to the survivor and for justice to prevail. In response to these gaps, and to ensure facilitation of evidence based programming, the Liverpool VCT Care & Treatment (LVCT) and Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI) organised a workshop. By using the findings of the SVRI desk review and sharing regional experiences and models this workshop aims to strengthen the way in which the health and criminal justice systems intersect and respond to sexual violence.
