Dear SVRI List Members,

The SVRI team is thrilled to send out this special update to celebrate the following two events:

I.                     Launching the new SVRI website!

The SVRI is proud to announce the launch of our new, fresh and dynamic website. The website is located at the same address: www.svri.org<http://www.svri.org>.

The new website offers recent collections of sexual violence research and other related research publications such as journal articles, reports and links to various organisations. Visitors on our website will be able to keep up to date with the latest events, news and publications while saving on their bandwidth. The new website is easy to navigate and there is a search "button" on the homepage which allows you to get whatever you need quicker.

If you need the latest information on webinars, conferences and workshops that are based on sexual violence and other related areas check our calendar of events. You will get detailed information on events around the globe<http://www.svri.org/event-calendar>.

Our new design still keeps the essential elements of the previous website and is restructured under the following themes:

  *   Priority Areas<http://www.svri.org/our-priorities>: Our priority areas have been carefully thought through to align with SVRIs Sexual Violence Research Agenda<http://svri.org/documents/research-agenda>. Each area can be found on the left hand tab, containing up to date reports, journal abstracts and relevant links.
  *   Country Pages<http://www.svri.org/documents/country-pages>: The country pages are featured by region on the left hand tab. Please send us your country specific work to add.
  *   Supporting Research<http://www.svri.org/supporting-research>: This theme is similar to our old website but offers more in-depth sub-categories and updated materials.
  *   Funding Opportunities<http://www.svri.org/documents/funding-resources>: This theme provides a list of funding resources from across the globe.

Our top bar retains essential information about the SVRI, our publications, meetings and workshops, the SVRI Forum and our online platforms. We are also excited to bring you Pdf archive versions of the SVRI Update for download under SVRI Update Online.

We would like to encourage you to explore our new innovative website at: www.svri.org<http://www.svri.org>. Please note that the website continues to be updated - if you have any queries or documentation to share, you are welcome to contact us at: svri at mrc.ac.za<mailto:svri at mrc.ac.za>.
