We work to implement the holistic model of care for survivors of sexual violence in health facilities around the world.
Survivors of sexual violence worldwide should have access to medical, psychological, legal and socio-economic support. Together with Panzi, we work to implement the holistic model in other parts of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), and in other countries affected by war.
Our unique approach: holistic care is integrated in existing health facilities. By bringing together existing services in one place, we ensure that the system is sustainable and survivors have access to the care they need.
In Bangui, the capital of Central African Republic, we work to integrate medical, psychological and legal support in an existing hospital, following the model in Congo.
Access to medical and psychological care helps survivors to heal. Legal assistance and socio-economic support, such as vocational training, enables them to reintegrate in society. All together ensures the well-being of individuals and benefits society as a whole, as survivors return to contribute to the society and the economy.
