Sexual violence is widespread in conflicts and emergencies, and can do lasting harm to men, women, children, LGBT people, persons with disabilities, and other vulnerable groups. Developed with expert input from ICRC, MSF, UNHCR, UNFPA, Physicians for Human Rights and Handicap International, CERAH's intensive one-week course gives emergency program managers the critical analysis and practical tools they need to design, implement and evaluate multidisciplinary programs to prevent and respond to sexual violence. Once a year, the course is offered in Uganda, where course participants meet and hear from community groups about their needs.
Topics covered include:
- The survivor-centered approach
- Situation analysis: ethics and methods of data-gathering
- Sexual violence against men and boys
- Medical care
- Policy and practice: pregnancy as a result of rape
- Mental health care and psychosocial support
- Access to justice
- Community engagement
- Prevention: How do we know what works?
- Monitoring and evaluation
