PHR’s Program on Sexual Violence in Conflict Zones is a multi-year training and advocacy initiative that aims to forge coalitions among regional medical, law enforcement, and legal experts. PHR’s goal is to dramatically increase local capacity for the collection of court-admissible evidence of sexual violence to support the future prosecution of these crimes. This video provides a glimpse into PHR’s program in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Kenya and the medical-legal network that has had positive effects on survivors of sexual violence and methods of accountability.
PHR’s Program on Sexual Violence in Conflict Zones brings together doctors, nurses, social workers, police officers, lawyers, magistrates, and judges with the goal of helping stakeholders to collect, document, and preserve evidence of sexual violence in order to help improve local prosecutions. This video provides a short preview of our program in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Kenya and how it works to promote justice and accountability for survivors of sexual violence.
