UNTREATED VIOLENCE: Critical gaps in medical and clinical forensic care for survivors of sexual violence in South Africa

With the objective of verifying whether designated facilities have the capacity to provide comprehensive medical and clinical forensic care for survivors of sexual violence, Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) conducted a nation-wide telephonic mapping of designated facilities in October 2017, providing an initial overview of what service provision gaps exist at designated facilities. The mapping, together with MSF experience working with the North West Department of Health in Bojanala District, informs recommendations on how to improve the provision of care in the future. Since 2015, MSF has supported the North West Department of Health (NWDoH) in providing comprehensive patient-centred services for survivors of sexual violence in Bojanala District.
