I. SVRI List Member Request: SA MRC 

Developing A National Curriculum and Training Manuals for Sexual Assault Care Practitioners in South Africa - Information Request:  The South African Medical Research Council, assisted by the UK Government's Department for International Development (DFID) have embarked on an initiative to provide technical support to the Department of Health's Directorate of Mother, Child and Women's Health (MCWH) in order to improve sexual assault services within South Africa.  This initiative aims to develop a national curriculum and training manuals for Sexual Assault Care Practitioners in South Africa and provide support for all provinces.  

We are currently in the process of finalizing the curriculum for piloting throughout the country.  However, there are still a number of queries that we are struggling to resolve and gaps we are trying to fill.  It would be greatly appreciated it you could assist with any one of the following questions.  

a)  We have found conflicting information on the maximum time that evidence should be collected after an assault.  What is the exact time limitation?  Does it differ for adults and children?  If yes, why is this so? Does it differ for genital, anal, oral penetration?  

b) Should we collect the reference pubic and head hair specimens from all survivors?  If no, when should we collect these specimens?

c) Are digital cameras used to capture injuries?  If yes, are there guidelines available on the type of camera to use, how to capture the photographs and how to process and store the photographs?

We would also appreciate receiving any related reference material.  Please send your responses directly to Roxy at ruxana.jina at gmail.com.

Retrieved 01/14/2008, from: http://www.vawnet.org:  This paper looks at the current research on screening women for sexual violence in health care facilities. Background data on the problem of sexual assault is presented. Also discussed is the reasoning and rationale behind screening women for violence at heath care sites, the work that has been accomplished so far   in screening of women for intimate partner violence and the possible reasons why questions about sexual violence in the lives of women have not been included on some of these screens.

Stateless and vulnerable to human trafficking in Thailand, Vital Voices Global Partnership, 2007:  While Thailand has committed itself to eliminating human trafficking, it remains an origin, source and transit state for human trafficking. One contributing factor, identified here, is the lack of citizenship for hundreds of thousands of hill tribe villagers. This prevents them from accessing state benefits like healthcare, education or travel permits to freely travel around Thailand. As a result, they become vulnerable to exploitation and human trafficking. If trafficked, victims without proof of citizenship receive limited protection, little assistance and may be denied re-entry into Thailand. Improving access to citizenship would eliminate a significant factor contributing to human trafficking in Thailand.
