I. Call for Abstracts: SVRI Forum 2011: Moving the Agenda Forward, 10 – 13 October 2011, Vineyard Boutique Hotel, Cape Town, South Africa

The SVRI is pleased to announce its second international conference, the SVRI Forum 2011: Moving the agenda forward. The conference will focus on research priorities to strengthen our responses to sexual violence globally and to encourage participants to network, share ideas and exciting strategies in the field.

Visit: http://www.svri.org/forum2011/abstracts.htm <http://www.svri.org/forum2011/abstracts.htm>  to submit or http://www.svri.org/forum2011/ <http://www.svri.org/forum2011/>  for more information on the conference.

II. Invitation: SVRI Oak Research Seminar: Parenting, Gender Socialisation and the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect in Low- and Middle-income Countries

The Sexual Violence Research Initiative would like to invite you to a research seminar on Parenting, Gender Socialisation and the Prevention of Child Abuse and Neglect in Low- and Middle-income Countries on Thursday, 23 September 2010, from 4-800pm at the Trafalgar Hotel, London, UK. For more information on this event, please see the invitation in English http://www.svri.org/inviteenglish.pdf <http://www.svri.org/inviteenglish.pdf>  or French http://www.svri.org/invitefrench.pdf <http://www.svri.org/invitefrench.pdf> . For any queries, please contact Lizle at: lloots at mrc.ac.za <mailto:lloots at mrc.ac.za> . 

III. SVRI Member Request: Publications on Integrated and Non-Integrated Services for Underage Victims of Abuse.

The Evidence Informed Policy Networks (EVIPNet) is an innovative mechanism designed to promote the systematic use of high quality health research in policymaking in low and middle income countries. Within the context of EVIPNet, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) is supporting an effort in Trinidad to develop a policy brief assessing integrated (medical, legal, social support) vs. non-integrated services for victims of sexual violence under the age of 18. This is a topic that was chosen by the local Ministry of Health and it is important to highlight that the process of preparing the policy brief is as important as the actual end product since it is an opportunity to build local capacity on the use of research evidence in the decision making processes.

SVRI members are kindly requested to share key publications / efforts or knowledge thereof that may have evaluated integrated vs. non-integrated services for underage victims of sexual abuse. If you are able to share information with us, please contact Dr Evelina Chapman at: chapmane at paho.org <mailto:chapmane at paho.org>  with a copy to evipnet at paho.org <mailto:evipnet at paho.org>
