MEMBER'S REQUEST

Systematic review on one stop centres for responding to intimate partner violence and sexual violence:
The WHO Department of Reproductive Health and Research is currently undertaking a systematic review on evaluations of the 'one stop centre' as a model to respond to intimate partner and sexual violence against women. As most of you are aware, the model attempts to provide comprehensive, multi-sectoral services (such as medical, legal, police, and social services) under one roof to increase accessibility and decrease victim retraumatization. Other names for this model include the one stop crisis centre, one stop shop, family or women and child protection unit, gender based violence recovery centre, Thuthuzela centre as in South Africa, or Casa de la Mujer as in El Salvador.

We would greatly appreciate your assistance with this and ask you to please share any published and/or unpublished documents, articles, or papers on this subject for consideration in the review. Please send this to olsonr at who.int<mailto:olsonr at who.int>.
