*IX.  SPANISH VERSION OF SVRI ONLINE QUESTIONNAIRE NEW TO SVRI WEBSITE:
*
Services for women who have experienced sexual violence which are 
informed by feminist, women centered philosophies of service provision, 
have now been in existence since the 1970s. Very little evaluation of 
these services, however, has occurred from the perspective of service 
users and even less from that of service providers.  In order to begin 
addressing this gap, the SVRI has been collecting information via an 
online survey.

We have recently added a Spanish version of the Practice Wisdom 
questionnaire to the website.  We would like thank all who have 
responded to date and to invite women providing sexual violence services 
from Spanish speaking parts of the world to complete the questionnaire.  
Please visit it at:  http://www.svri.org/cuestionario/

When available, findings from the online survey will be made available 
on the SVRI website and will be presented that Forum 10 conference in 
November this year.

*Child abuse and violence database:  *Women's World Summit Foundation 
(WWSF ) is compiling a database of Internet links to prevention programs 
of child abuse and violence against children so that good practices and 
innovative measures may be shared among child rights organizations and 
relevant groups. This database will be launched on the WWSF annual World 
Day for Prevention of Child Abuse on November 19, 2006. By sharing 
information through this clearinghouse, each organization contributes to 
the creation of a culture of prevention. For more information, contact 
admin at wwsf.ch <mailto:admin at wwsf.ch>, or visit the WWSF website
