Sexual violence and intimate partner violence (IPV) can be especially problematic during complex emergencies and natural disasters. In these situations, civilian women and children are often targets of abuse, exploitation, and violence because of their sex, age, and status in society.
This course aims to describe best practices and detailed guidance on the clinical management of women, men, and children who have been raped, from first-line support, to procedures, examination, follow-up, forensic evidence collection, and treatment options applicable to several contexts. The course’s target audience is healthcare providers working in emergencies who may be confronted with CMR-IPV and would need to apply an integrated clinical approach to care for rape survivors in vulnerable settings.
